As far as the draft of the G-20 is concerned, efforts are being made to settle the issue of Ukraine and Russia before the commencement of India’s chairmanship. It is only because of India’s leadership of developing countries and emerging markets that a full declaration has come out. A consensus could be formed only because of India. And India’s suggestion that the Ukraine issue is settled through an inclusive paragraph, given the deep divisions, has led to language agreed upon in the declaration after five days of discussion. Significantly, India has always kept its position completely balanced on the Russia-Ukraine war at the United Nations forums.
