The New Delhi Leaders’ Summit Declaration was adopted on Saturday in a massive breakthrough as members of the G20 arrived at a “100% consensus” on the opening day of the Summit on Saturday. Prime Minister Narendra made the big announcement which the government described as “historic and pathbreaking”.
“I have received good news. Due to the hard work of our team, consensus has been built on New Delhi G20 Leaders’ Summit Declaration. My proposal is to adopt this leadership declaration. I announce to adopt this declaration. On this occasion, I congratulate my Sherpa, ministers, who worked hard for it and made it possible,” PM Modi said while making the announcement.
“It is my proposal that this G20 declaration be adopted,” the Prime Minister said. The declaration was welcomed with G20 members thumping their desks.
India’s G20 Sherpa Amitabh Kant said that the New Delhi Declaration – running into 38 paragraphs, was adopted with “100% consensus on all developmental and geo-political issues”.
“The New Delhi Leaders Declaration has been officially adopted at the G20 India Leaders’ Summit! Today’s era must be marked as the golden age of human-centric globalisation and India’s G20 Presidency under the leadership of PM Narendra Modi has worked tirelessly towards this goal,” Kant posted on X (formerly Twitter).
Hammering out a consensus on the “geopolitical paras” – a reference to the wording of the Ukraine crisis which had been a major sticking point – demonstrated Prime Minister Modi’s leadership in today’s world”, Kant added.
This effectively made G20 India “the most ambitious in the history of G20 presidencies”, the top official said.
The government also said that the New Delhi Leaders Declaration had a “huge India narrative, huge India footprint”.
Earlier in the day, PM Modi called for bridging the “global trust deficit” that had been deepened further by the war in Ukraine, as India proposed a new text on the Ukraine crisis to break the deadlock over the Delhi Declaration.
The G20 grouping had been deeply divided over the war in Ukraine, with Western nations pushing for strong condemnation of Russia in the Leaders’ Declaration, while others demanded a focus on broader economic issues.
‘India got 100% consensus’
Calling the New Delhi Declaration “historical and path breaking,” G20 Sherpa Amitabh Kant on Friday said that India got the “100 per cent” consensus on all developmental and geo-political issues focussing on Strong, Sustainable, Balanced, and Inclusive Growth Accelerating Progress on Sustainable Development Goals.
Soon after Prime minister Narendra Modi announced that the consensus has been achieved on New Delhi G20 Leaders’ Summit Declaration and announced its adoption, G20 Sherpa Kant congratulated India.
“Historical and Path breaking #G20 Declaration with 100 per cent consensus on all developmental and geo-political issues. The new geopolitical paras are a powerful call for Planet, People, Peace and Prosperity in today’s world . Demonstrates PM @narendramodi leadership in today’s world,” Kant said on a post shared on X.
“The #NewDelhiLeadersDeclaration focuses on – Strong, Sustainable, Balanced, and Inclusive Growth Accelerating Progress on #SDGs Green Development Pact for a Sustainable Future Multilateral Institutions for the 21st Century Reinvigorating Multilateralism,” he added.
On the social media account, Kant further said that G20 India has been the most ambitious in the history of the presidencies. With 112 outcomes and presidency documents, we have more than doubled the substantive work from previous presidencies.
India’s G20 Presidency has been inclusive, ambitious, decisive, action-oriented and unafraid to challenge the status quo. Under PM Modi, India have given a strong call to action for the leaders to take G20 to the last mile.
Earlier, PM Modi announced, “I have received good news. Due to the hard work of our team, consensus has been built on New Delhi G20 Leaders’ Summit Declaration. My proposal is to adopt this leadership declaration. I announce to adopt this declaration. On this occasion, I congratulate my Sherpa, ministers, who worked hard for it and made it possible…”
