G20 leaders deplore Russia’s war against Ukraine in joint declaration
Leaders of the G20 member nations have issued a statement of joint condemnation in the strongest terms of the Russian Federation’s aggression against Ukraine. The Group of 20 has demanded Russia’s complete and unconditional withdrawal from the territory of Ukraine in a declaration adopted at the end of summit.
“Most members strongly condemned the war in Ukraine and stressed it is causing immense human suffering and exacerbating existing fragilities in the global economy,” the statement reads.
According to CNN, Indonesian President and G20 host Joko Widodo stated at a news conference that “world leaders agreed on the content of the declaration, namely condemnation of the war in Ukraine” which violates its territorial integrity.
