Positive Evaluation of G20 Summit
Miller noted that the G20 is a substantial international organization, with member countries representing diverse perspectives, including Russia and China.

G20 Leaders’ Declaration on Ukraine
The G20 Leaders’ Declaration issued in New Delhi addressed the Ukraine conflict and its implications for global peace and security. The declaration explicitly stated that the “use or threat of use of nuclear weapons is inadmissible” and urged all states to act in accordance with the principles and principles of the UN Charter, refraining from threatening or using force to seek territorial acquisition.
Reaffirming G20’s Role
The New Delhi Declaration reaffirmed the G20’s status as the premier forum for international economic cooperation. It acknowledged that while the G20 primarily focuses on economic matters, geopolitical and security issues can significantly impact the global economy. The member countries called for upholding international law, including principles of territorial integrity, sovereignty, and international humanitarian law.
Global Peace and Stability
The declaration emphasized peaceful conflict resolution, crisis management, diplomacy, and dialogue as critical elements in addressing global challenges. It welcomed constructive initiatives supporting a comprehensive, just, and lasting peace in Ukraine while adhering to the UN Charter’s principles for peaceful and friendly international relations.
