French and US leaders have welcomed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s message to Russian President Vladimir Putin on the war in Ukraine.
On September 16, at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit in Samarkand, Modi told the Russian leader that “today’s era is not war” and stressed the need to find ways to solve problems like food, fuel security and fertiliser. .
At the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday (local time), French President Emmanuel Macron said Modi was “OK”.
“Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was right when he said that there is no time for war. It is not about taking revenge on the West or pitting the West against the East. It is time for collective time for our sovereign, egalitarian nations. To overcome together the challenges we face,” Macron said.
“What Prime Minister Modi said — a statement of policy that he believes is right and just — was very welcome by the United States,” Sullivan said in a White House statement.
Last week, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said India’s concerns about war reflected global fears of conflict.
