Asia-Pacific leaders add their voices to international pressure on Russia over its invasion of Ukraine, issuing a summit statement saying "most" of them condemned the war.

"Most members strongly condemned the war in Ukraine and stressed it is causing immense human suffering and exacerbating existing fragilities in the global economy," the 21 leaders of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum says.

The statement, also signed off on by APEC members Russia and China, followed the wording of a G20 declaration issued last week. — AFP
