The “use or threat of use of nuclear weapons is inadmissible,” the G20 nations stated on September 9 in a New Delhi Leaders’ Declaration in the context of the Ukraine war.
The New Delhi Declaration reaffirmed that the G20 is the premier forum for international economic cooperation, and the member countries acknowledged that the G20 is not the platform for geopolitical and security issues, although these issues can have consequences for the global economy.
The G20 member countries called on all nations to respect core principles of international law. These principles include upholding territorial integrity, sovereignty, following international humanitarian laws, and supporting the multilateral system that helps maintain global peace and stability.
