PM Modi on the job, says ex-envoy
New Delhi, Feb. 24 (Delhi Crown): India is engaging (at all levels) with the stake-holders in the ongoing Russia-Ukraine crisis, even as the country’s representative at the U.N. T.S. Tirumurti called for an immediate de-escalation of tensions between the two warring nations.
Earlier in the day, Ukraine envoy in Delhi Igor Polikha had urged Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to make use of his “good equations” with Russian President Vladimir Putin in stopping the war.
“Indian PM is doing his job. We will engage with all,” a former Indian diplomat told THE DELHI CROWN.
India’s Permanent Representative to the UN Ambassador T.S. Tirumurti told the U.N. Security Council that New Delhi had only two days ago at the Council meeting on Ukraine called for urgent de-escalation of tensions and emphasised on sustained and focused diplomacy to address all issues concerning the situation.
Meanwhile, Indian Foreign Secretary Harsh Shringla is going to address the media on the Ukraine situation in an hour from now, said sources in the Ministry of External Affairs.
