Promoting Peace in Today’s Era

The New Delhi Declaration, adopted by G20 countries under India’s Presidency, carries a resounding message that the present era must not be dominated by warfare. Instead, it emphasizes the importance of upholding international law principles, including territorial integrity and sovereignty, and underscores the significance of peaceful conflict resolution, diplomacy, and dialogue.

Reaffirming Commitment to International Law

The G20 leaders, in line with the United Nations Charter, reiterated their commitment to act consistently with the Charter’s Purposes and Principles, which include refraining from the threat or use of force to acquire territory against the territorial integrity, sovereignty, or political independence of any state. Furthermore, the declaration firmly states that the use or threat of nuclear weapons is unacceptable.

The G20’s Role in Global Economic Cooperation

The New Delhi Declaration reiterates the G20’s status as the premier forum for international economic cooperation. While acknowledging that the G20 is not the platform for resolving geopolitical and security issues, the leaders recognize that such matters can significantly impact the global economy.

Understanding the Impact of the Ukraine War

The declaration acknowledges the profound consequences of the war in Ukraine on various fronts, including human suffering, global food and energy security, supply chains, macro-financial stability, inflation, and growth. These impacts have further complicated the policy landscape, especially for developing and least developed countries still recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Supporting Efforts for Food Security

The G20 leaders appreciate the initiatives and agreements brokered by Turkiye and the United Nations in the context of the Ukraine crisis, particularly those related to the safe transportation of grain, foodstuffs, and fertilizers. These initiatives aim to ensure the immediate and unhindered delivery of essential goods, benefiting developing countries, particularly in Africa.

Upholding International Law and Multilateralism

The declaration emphasizes the importance of adhering to international law principles, including territorial integrity, sovereignty, and international humanitarian law. It also reaffirms support for the multilateral system that safeguards global peace and stability.

A Call for Peace, Diplomacy, and Dialogue

The G20 leaders highlight the significance of peaceful conflict resolution, crisis management efforts, and diplomatic dialogue in addressing global challenges. They express a commitment to uniting in their efforts to mitigate the adverse impact of the war on the global economy and welcome constructive initiatives that promote a comprehensive, just, and lasting peace in Ukraine, aligning with the principles of the UN Charter.

In summary, the New Delhi Declaration underscores the G20’s commitment to peace, international law, and dialogue, sending a powerful message that collective efforts are essential to overcome global challenges and promote a peaceful and prosperous future.
