Newsline: India is suddenly the center of global wartime diplomacy

India has historically strong military and economic ties with Russia, and is noticeably reticent to join the condemnation of Vladimir Putin’s government. British foreign minister Liz Truss will visit India on Thursday as part of a “wider diplomatic push” on the war in Ukraine, her office said, a trip which coincides with her Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov travelling to the country. (https://news.yahoo.com/uks-truss-visit-india-same-213302911.html) India has frustrated Western allies by refusing to condemn Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and by buying Russian commodities at a discount. India’s foreign ministry said Lavrov would also visit India on Thursday, adding Indian officials would hold talks with diplomats from the United States and Britain beforehand. It wasn’t immediately known whether Truss and Lavrov would meet while in India.
