It was conveyed to the President and fundamentally agreement on the format and form of final report will still be discussed in four sous sherpa cycles,” Airlangga said, adding that delegations are also finalizing a consensus draft with G20 leaders that will be reflected on the Leaders’ Declaration.

“Several countries, especially developed countries, are still pushing for issues related to Ukraine be a joint agreement, while we want to include it in the Leaders’ Declaration. So, technically and in terms of format, we must have further discussions,” he said.
