‘India has ability to persuade Putin to end Ukraine war’: US after PM Modi’s visit to Russia

Washington: The United States on Tuesday (local time) called on India to support peace efforts in Ukraine after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘successful’ meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow. The White House called India a “strategic partner” whose long-standing relationship with Russia can persuade Putin to end the over two-year war in Ukraine.

“India is a strategic partner with whom we engage in full and frank dialogue, including their relationship with Russia and we’ve talked about this before. So we think it’s critical that all countries, including India, support efforts to realize an enduring and just peace when it comes to Ukraine. It is important for all our allies to realise this and so we also believe India’s long-standing relationship with Russia gives it the ability to urge President Putin, to end his brutal war, an unprovoked war in Ukraine,” said White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre in a press briefing.
