Most of the G20 leaders gathered for a summit in Bali will condemn Russia's invasion of Ukraine, Bloomberg reports citing a draft joint statement from the meeting.
- The document reportedly says that "most members strongly condemned the war in Ukraine and stressed it is causing immense human suffering and exacerbating existing fragilities in the global economy - constraining growth, increasing inflation, disrupting supply chains, heightening energy and food insecurity, and elevating financial stability risks."
- Bloomberg reports that the statement will be endorsed by all G20 members including Russia, following the addition of a caveat noting that some countries have "other views and different assessments of the situation."
- Earlier press reports had flagged Indonesia's efforts to court members into signing off on joint communique after the recent ASEAN summit ended without a statement.
