Washington. Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar has said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s comments about the ongoing war in Ukraine during his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Samarkand should not be seen as a change in India’s stance on the issue. Jaishankar said India has consistently said that the war between Russia and Ukraine must end at the earliest. Responding to a finalized question about the referendum in Ukraine in the Russian-occupied territories, the foreign minister told a group of Indian journalists on Wednesday that India will take its position on the issue at the United Nations in New York.

He said: “This matter will be considered in the United Nations. So I urge you to wait and see what our ambassadors there say.” During the Sept. 16 meeting between Prime Minister Modi and Russian President Putin in Samarkand, Jaishankar said this was the first direct interaction between the two leaders after the outbreak of war in Ukraine. “It is natural that the press was addressed after the face-to-face meeting and we can watch the video of that occasion,” he said.
