What Putin said on PM Modi’s birthday
Putin told PM Modi, ‘My friend, tomorrow you are going to celebrate your birthday. According to Russian traditions we never greet in advance so I can’t do it at the moment. But I want to tell you that we are aware of this. We would like to wish you and the friendly country India the very best of luck. We wish India prosperity under your leadership. Putin told PM Modi that I am aware of your position and concerns on Ukraine conflict.
‘We want Ukraine war to end soon’
The Russian President said that we want all this to end as soon as possible. We will keep you informed about what is happening there. In the meeting with Putin, PM Modi said that I am grateful to you and Ukraine because thousands of our students trapped in crisis were able to get out only with the help of both of you. He said that today there are many big problems facing the world, especially the developing countries, which include food security, fuel security, fertilizers and we have to find ways to deal with them.
