Astana: Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday that India and China supported “peaceful dialogue” in Ukraine.
“India and China always speak about the necessity to establish the dialogue and resolve things peacefully, and we know their position. They are our close allies and partners. But we also know Kyiv’s position. They were constantly saying that they want peace talks, but now they set the official decision which prohibits those talks,” Putin made the statement during a news conference in the Kazakh capital Astana.
Putin’s statement comes after a month when Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Xi Jinping seem to differ with him over the conflict at Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit in Uzbekistan.
It is pertinent to mention that PM Modi’s advised Putin that “today’s era is not of war” during a meeting that occurred on the sidelines of the SCO summit in Samarkand in September.
PM Modi also called for early cessation of hostilities at a bilateral meeting with Putin. PM Modi’s statement grabbed the attention of leading international media organisations.
He also emphasized the need to find ways to address the problems of food, fuel security, and fertilizers.
The Russian President, in his remark, said that he knows about India’s position and concerns regarding the Ukraine conflict.
“I know about your position on Ukraine’s conflict and your concerns. We want all of this to end as soon as possible. We will keep you abreast of what is happening there.”
