India's G20 Sherpa Amitabh Kant and his team have been lauded for their efforts in helping the country secure a 100% consensus on the New Delhi declaration on the first day of the G20 Summit despite contentious issues. The most challenging aspect was reportedly reaching an agreement on "geopolitical matters," including the Russia-Ukraine crisis. While appreciating two members of his team, Kant said over 200 hours of non-stop negotiations, 300 bilateral meetings, and 15 drafts helped achieve the consensus.
