New Delhi, India: The Russian Foreign Ministry , in its latest statements, called G20 functioning to be against Russia as the United States, the European Union and the G7 attempt to isolate Russia as well as blaming it for problems in international security and the global economy.
On February 24-25, a meeting of the Finance Ministers and the Central Bank Governors was held in Bangalore, within the framework of the Indian G20 Presidency, in which the Russian delegation also participated.
As the Russian Foreign Ministry noted, the nations at the meeting have agreed on various measures in a bid to uplift the global economy and financial markets, with considerable contributions being made by Russia and BRICS partners and developing countries.
Furthermore, the Russian foreign ministry stated that the West has destabilized the activities of G20, which are being directed against Russian interests.
Adding further, it stated that the Western nations have been making absurd interpretations of the scenario in Ukraine, which is disrupting the adoption of collective measures.
Consequently, the fully-approved documents which contained the assessments of discussion weren’t even considered at the meeting.
Moreover, the conclusions of the meeting were not jointly agreed upon, and were released only as a statement by the chairman, which led to Russia and China’s resolute protest in this regard.
Many other delegations were disappointed with the actions of the United States and its allies, which according to them, continues to sow enmity and hatred.
The Russian ministry also urged the West to resort out of its ‘destructive course’ as soon as possible for the realization of objective realities of a multipolar world and building normal relations with new centres of power in the international arena.
It further stated that the G20 should remain an economic forum with no intrusion into security issues, as it was unanimously affirmed at the last summit on November 15-16 in Bali.
We will continue to promote the fulfilment of the functions entrusted on G20 on a mutually beneficial and depoliticized basis.
