What did PM Modi say
Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Russian President Vladimir Putin had a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization meeting in Samarkand. During this, PM Modi had bluntly said that today’s era is not a time of war and I have already talked to you on this on the phone. To this, Putin told PM Modi that he was aware of India’s concerns about the Ukraine war and that Russia would do everything possible to end it at the earliest. Let us tell you that on February 24, Russia announced a special military operation in Ukraine.
Russia’s Invasion Points To Imperialism
Emmanuel Macron told the UNGA that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine marked an era of imperialism. What we have seen since February 24 is a return to the era of imperialism and colonialism, he said. France opposes this and will work relentlessly for peace. He also expressed opposition to Putin’s prospect of a referendum in Russian-occupied eastern Ukraine. He said that Ukraine has rights over those areas and should not be occupied by Russia.
Macron said – the global system is collapsing
Macron said that those who are now silent on this new imperialism, or are secretly involved in it, show a new fad which is destroying the global order without which peace is not possible. Macron further said that it is time for sovereign states like ours to face the challenges before us.
