"Uniting everyone on the path to achieving the singularly significant goal of making the world a better place, the summit leaves an indelible victory mark for every citizen of our country who believes in the greatness of our benevolent cultural values," he said.

BJP officials, including Union ministers, also praised India's G20 leadership and praised the passage of the New Delhi Declaration.

In a post on X, the minister expressed gratitude to all of the G20 participants for their assistance and support.

  • According to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, the G20 conference in Delhi marked a turning point because it prevented the conflict in Ukraine from dominating the conversation. The gathering, according to Mr. Lavrov, was a success because India, as the G20's president, had successfully solidified the position of the Global South.

The Western attempts to "Ukrainize" the summit agenda were thwarted, Mr. Lavrov said as the two-day conference came to a finish. The seasoned Russian official said, "There is absolutely no reference of Russia in the text.

  • Grandiose plans to establish a modern-day Spice Route connecting Europe, the Middle East, and India were announced by a large consortium that included the United States and Saudi Arabia.

  • The G20's unified statement, according to the Ukrainian foreign ministry, was "nothing to be proud of" and was lambasted for not confronting Russia directly.

  • Oleg Nikolenko, a spokesman for the foreign ministry, shared a screenshot of the pertinent portion of the joint declaration with many passages redacted and replaced with language that more accurately reflected Ukraine's view that it was the victim of unprovoked Russian aggression.
