Prime Minister Narendra Modi's views have always been impactful. This article aims to explain how his recent statements on nuclear war, endangerment of nuclear facilities, safety and security, and consequences on public health and the environment have impacted the Russians.
"It could well have averted a global disaster in the context of the Ukraine war,'' says the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Remarks by the CIA Chief are considered another endorsement of India's position on the Ukraine conflict.
Additionally, Bill Burns said in an interview with PBS that it has been beneficial that Xi Jinping and Prime Minister Modi have raised their concerns about using nuclear weapons in India. He suggests that this is also having an impact on the Russians.
Recently, PM Modi held a telephone conversation with Russia's Vladimir Putin. During the conversation, "PM Modi briefed President Putin on India's ongoing Presidency of G-20, highlighting its key priorities. He also looked forward to both countries working together during India's Chairship of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation. They agreed to remain in regular touch with each other," according to a statement from PMO.
However, India has been calling for dialogue and diplomacy since the war began between Russia and Ukraine. In a telephone exchange with Russia's Vladimir Putin on December 16, Prime Minister Narendra Modi restated his call for dialogue and diplomacy. He emphasized it as the "only way forward" in the context of the Ukraine war. On global platforms like the United Nations, India has called for restraining violence and resolving the issue through diplomatic channels.
Vladimir Putin gave fundamental assessments of Russia's line on the Ukrainian direction, at the request of Narendra Modi," according to the statement released by the Kremlin.
"Today's era is not of war, and we should be finding ways to address the problems of food, fuel security, and fertilizers," said Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Meanwhile, during the meeting in Samarkand, Russian President Putin said, "I know about your position on the Ukraine conflict. I know about your concerns. We want all of this to end as soon as possible."
In his address, according to CNN, Putin also warned of the "increasing" threat of nuclear war and that Russia will fight by "all available means" at its disposal.
