Volodymyr Zelenskyy phones PM Narendra Modi, seeks help via peace formula
New Delhi : Prime Minister Narendra Modi had a phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who sought India support on 10-point peace formula that he proposed during his US visit last week.
It must be noted that this is the 4th telephone call between PM Modi and Zelenskyy since February 24th, when Russia invaded Ukraine.
After the phone call, Zelenskyy tweeted, "I had a phone call with PM Narendra Modi and wished for a successful G20 presidency. It was on this platform that I announced the peace formula and now I count on India’s participation and its implementation. I also thanked for humanitarian aid and support in the UN."
His formula demands withdrawal of Russian troops from Ukraine, the release of prisoners, restoration of Ukraine, territorial integrity and guarantee on nuclear safety, food and energy.
Meanwhile, PMO also confirmed the phone call and said that India has affirmed all possible support in peace talks.
The Zelenskyy-Modi phone call came 10 days after Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke to Modi and discussed the situation in Ukraine and India-Russia bilateral ties. This was their fifth phone conversation this year since the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
