US On Ukraine War: Welcome India, Other Nations Bringing Peace
WASHINGTON, DC (ANI) – The US will welcome the role that India or any other country could play in helping achieve a “just and lasting peace” while recognizing Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty, US Department of State spokesperson Matthew Miller said at a press briefing on July 11.
To a question whether India or Prime Minister Narendra Modi can play a part in putting an end to the protracted conflict between Russia and Ukraine, Miller said, “We welcome a role that India or any other country could play in helping achieve a just and lasting peace that recognizes Ukraine’s territorial integrity and Ukraine’s sovereignty.” Responding to another question on the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict, Miller said, “The war has been a strategic failure for Russia which has seen the enormous loss of both military personnel and military equipment. They have seen their standing in the world affected. They have seen their economy crippled by the sanctions and export controls we have imposed.”
Earlier, in June, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Joe Biden expressed concern over the conflict in Ukraine and mourned its “terrible and tragic” humanitarian consequences. The two leaders in a joint statement called for respect for international law, principles of the United Nations charter, and territorial integrity and sovereignty.
