On Saturday, external affairs minister S Jaishankar reiterated India's stand on the Ukraine war. Addressing the United Nations General Assembly, he said India is on the side of peace in the Ukraine conflict and will remain there.
“It is on the side that respects the United Nations charter and its founding principles; on the side that calls for diplomacy and dialogue; and on the side of those struggling to make ends meet, even as they stare at escalating costs of food, fuel, and fertilizers,” the external affairs minister added.
