Newsline: US eyes India’s role in diplomacy to end Russia-Ukraine war

US State Department spokesman Ned Price said Ukraine may have a role in diplomacy to put an end to Russia-Ukraine war. “We do believe that countries like India, countries that have a relationship with Russia and with Ukraine may be in a position to help bring about dialogue and diplomacy that could one day put an end to this war,” Price said on Friday while briefing foreign correspondents. “We have been in regular, close contact with India regarding what we can do to hold Russia accountable and to impose additional costs on Russia for its war.” (https://in.investing.com/news/india-may-have-role-in-diplomacy-to-end-russiaukraine-war-us-state-dept-spokesman-3475607) India has abstained on votes at the UN condemning Russia’s invasion of Ukraine bringing to the fore the differences with US, even as the two countries have been developing closer ties. Price cited Prime Minister Narendra Modi publicly telling Russia’s President Vladimir Putin in September 2022, “I know that today’s era is not an era of war” and noted that it was echoed in the joint statement of the summit of the leaders of the G20 group of major industrialised and emerging economies that India heads.
