NEW DELHI: India is increasingly anxious about the knock-on effects of the Ukraine conflict in terms of accessibility and affordability of fuel, food and fertilisers, said foreign minister S Jaishankar in Vienna after a meeting with his Austrian counterpart Alexander Schallenberg.
“This is a growing concern for the Global South,” he added. Reiterating India’s call for a return to dialogue and diplomacy, Jaishankar sad PM Narenrda Modi has been in contact with the leaders of Russia and Ukraine, pressing them to end the war, as a prolonged conflict will not serve the interests of any party.
“We sincerely believe that this is not the era of war. Differences must be settled on the negotiating table. It is imperative that there is a return to dialogue and diplomacy. Prolonged conflict will not serve the interests of any party. My Prime Minister has been in contact with the leaders of both nations, pressing our point of view,” Jaishankar said.
Modi has spoken to the Presidents of Russia and Ukraine on multiple occasions and urged for immediate cessation of hostilities and return to the path of diplomacy and dialogue for the resolution of the conflict.
