The United States on Monday described the G20 Summit in New Delhi, which was held under India's presidency, as an ' absolute success'.

US State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller told reporters: "We absolutely believe that it was a success."

The New Delhi Declaration avoided direct mentioning of "Russia" in reference to the Russia-Ukraine war.

Reacting to this issue, the US official said: "G20 is a big organization.  Russia is a member of the G20; China is a member of the G20."

"There are members that have a diverse range of views.  We believe the fact that that organization was able to issue a statement that calls for respecting the territorial integrity and sovereignty and saying that those principles should not be violated is an extremely important statement, because that is exactly what is at heart of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine," he said.

India hosted the crucial G20 Summit in New Delhi over the weekend.
