G20 Summit 2023 LIVE – The first day of G20 Summit in New Delhi saw the ‘Delhi Declaration’ being adopted by the world leaders, one of the most crucial outcomes of the landmark conclave and India’s G20 presidency.
Among the major decisions taken by world leaders yesterday was the launch of rail and port connectivity network connecting US, India, Saudi Arabia and Europe, the launch of Global Biofuel Alliance and a call to end “global trust deficit”.
Another major development was PM Narendra Modi invitation to the African Union to join the G20 as a permanent member, a move India has long proposed.
Day 2 of the summit is likely to witness heavy engagements for several world leaders.

India’s sherpa Amitabh Kant told NDTV that nearly 200 hours of “nonstop negotiations” were needed to ensure a joint communique from G20 leaders divided over the bloc’s stance on Russia’s war on Ukraine.
He also said that the declaration was made possible after several round of talks and consensus was reached only late last night.
World leaders and delegates were served an all-vegetarian spread at the G20 dinner hosted by President Droupadi Murmu last evening.
