G20 Bali, summit concluded.  Final Statement: The use of nuclear weapons is unacceptable

The G20 Summit in Bali, Indonesia has officially concluded. Indonesian President Joko Widodo has handed over the hammer with which the current president guides summit meetings into the hands of Indian Prime Minister Nerendra Modi. India will soon assume the presidency of the G20 and host the 2023 edition of the summit.

G20 leaders approved the final document defined by the ‘Sherpas’ without further changes. International sources have indicated this. That document reiterates “the national positions expressed in other fora including the October UN resolution adopted by 141 votes, 5 votes against, 35 abstentions which deplores Russia’s aggression against Ukraine and calls for its complete withdrawal and unconditionally from Ukraine». The G20 draft statement added that “most member states strongly condemn the war in Ukraine…There have been other points of view and different assessments of the situation and the sanctions”. This formulation serves to keep all 19 member states together: for hours they tried to force the hand of China and India above all, but in vain. However, the evolution of the risks of an even longer-lasting conflict in Ukraine and of the even incidental involvement of NATO countries (the case of the Russian missile that arrived in Poland) could lead to an even stronger isolation of Russia.
