India on side of peace in Russia-Ukraine conflict: Jaishankar in UNGA

New Delhi, 25/9: Expressing concerns over crises of food, fuel and fertilizers caused by the conflict, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Saturday told the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) that India is on the side of peace in the Russia-Ukraine war and will remain firmly there.

He also tacitly hit out at China for shielding terrorists based in Pakistan from United Nations sanctions.


“The United Nations responds to terrorism by sanctioning its perpetrators. Those who politicize the UNSC 1267 Sanctions regime, sometimes even to the extent of defending proclaimed terrorists, they do so at their own peril. Believe me, they advance neither their own interests nor indeed their reputation,” Jaishankar said, adding, “Having borne the brunt of cross-border terrorism for decades, India firmly advocates a ‘zero-tolerance’ approach.”
