In the backdrop of Russia’s war in Ukraine and the subsequent geopolitical friction, PM’s Modi’s direct message to Russian President Vladimir Putin in September in Samarkand emerged as the point of consensus at the G20 summit in Bali.

The declaration read, “The peaceful resolution of conflicts, efforts to address crises, as well as diplomacy and dialogue, are vital. Today’s era must not be of war.”

The White House press secretary added that the summit had provided a path forward to food and energy security — concerns that India has consistently flagged since the onset of the war. “We look forward to supporting India’s G20’s presidency next year and look forward to the next meeting,” said Karin Jean-Pierre. India takes over as the G20 chair on December 1 and will host the next leaders summit in September 2023.
