The pair agreed that Ukraine’s integrity and territorial sovereignty must be respected.
Russia needed to adhere to the UN Charter, the leaders said, and both agreed that respect for international law was the only way to ensure global peace and prosperity, a press release from 10 Downing Street, said.
Modi gave an update on India’s support for the humanitarian situation in Ukraine, and Johnson said that UK and India should intensify efforts to promote peace and de-escalation in the region.
The leaders welcomed India and the UK’s strong and prosperous relationship, and agreed to continue to build on trade, security and business ties in the coming weeks and months. They looked forward to meeting in person at the earliest opportunity.
