How to end the war between Russia-Ukraine
Phnom Penh. External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar held a meeting with his Ukrainian counterpart Dimitro Kuleba on Saturday. The two leaders discussed recent developments in the region, nuclear concerns and ways to end Russia’s war against Ukraine. Jaishankar met Kuleba on the sidelines of the ASEAN-India summit in Cambodia’s capital here. He tweeted, “Glad to meet Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dimitro Kuleba. Our discussions included recent developments in the conflict, grain export initiatives and nuclear concerns.
Jaishankar’s meeting with Kuleba comes days after his two-day visit to Russia amid rising global concerns over the Russian-Ukrainian war. This was Jaishankar’s first visit to Moscow after the Ukraine war broke out in February. Jaishankar is on a visit with Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar. He is leading the Indian delegation to the ASEAN-India Summit and the 17th East Asia Summit here. Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Kuleba said on Twitter that they discussed bilateral cooperation and ways to end Russia’s war against Ukraine.
Russia stopped deadly attacks – Kuleba
Kuleba tweeted, “My Indian counterpart Jaishankar and I met to discuss bilateral cooperation and ways to end Russia’s war against Ukraine. I stressed that Russia must immediately stop the deadly attacks. All troops from Ukraine must be withdrawn and committed to peace. We also focused on global food security.
The crisis should be resolved through dialogue – India
India has not yet condemned the Russian invasion of Ukraine and has consistently maintained that the crisis should be resolved through diplomacy and dialogue. Since the start of the Ukraine conflict in February, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has spoken to Russian President Vladimir Putin as well as Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky several times.
discussion on food security
India has also said that the suspension of the initiative to export grain through the Black Sea is expected to pose challenges to food security and fuel and fertilizer supplies facing the world, especially in the southern part of the world. This initiative resulted in the export of more than 9 million tonnes of grain and other food products from Ukraine. Jaishankar held extensive talks with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov and Deputy Prime Minister Denis Manturov during his visit to Moscow from November 7 to 8.
