New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke about India’s stance on Russia and Ukraine conflict saying that its stand on the ‘war’ did not face widespread criticism, reported Reuters.
Speaking to Wall Street Journal, Prime Minister asserted that “I don’t think this type of perception is widespread in the U.S.” He responded to a question about a critical narrative against India for not taking a more forceful stance against Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
“I think India’s position is well known and well understood in the entire world. The world has full confidence that India’s top-most priority is peace.”
PM Modi has left for USA on Tuesday for his five-days long bilateral talks. The visit appears to be significant for the relationship between India and USA, with deeper cooperation in defence and high technology in focus.
Meanwhile, India avoided commenting against Russia considering that it has increased trade with Moscow to record levels. The nation has largely imported oil from Russia.
