New Delhi, Sep 9 (IANS): As Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the adoption of the Delhi G20 leadership declaration, he expressed his gratitude to the hardwork of all the Sherpas, minister and officials, for helping arriving at a consensus on the outcome document.
Official sources later informed that among all G20 presidencies, India's G20 presidency has been the most ambitious one as a total of 112 documents have been adopted during its tenure.
Out of these 112 documents, there have been 73 outcome documents and 39 annexed documents.
This data is in comparison with previous G20 presidencies since 2017. During the 2022 Bali summit, 50 documents has been adopted.
"The #NewDelhiLeadersDeclaration has been officially adopted at the #G20India Leaders' Summit! Today's era must be marked as the golden age of human-centric globalisation & India's G20 Presidency under the leadership of PM @narendramodi has worked tirelessly towards this goal," India's G20 Sherpa Amitabh Kant said on X, soon after the Prime Minister broke the news.
"There is good news, with everyone's cooperation consensus has been reached on Delhi G20 Leadership Declaration. My proposal is that it should be adopted," PM Modi said in a sudden announcement during the second session of the ongoing G20 leaders summit.
He then announced that the Delhi Declaration has been adopted, amid thunderous applause from all the world leaders.
The adoption of the Delhi Declaration came amid reports that aggressive deliberations had taken place between September 7 and 8 among the diplomats and Sherpas of the G20 nations on arriving at a consensus on formulating the language for the final declaration document, related to the reference to the Ukraine conflict, to which both Russia and China have been vehemently opposed.
The consensus over the language has been arrived at after apparently overcoming differences between Russia and other G20 nations, and it is being described as "compromise language", reports quoting sources said.
