Highlighting India's global standing as leader of the Global South, Ukraine's envoy Oleksandr Polishchuk on Friday said the nation needs India to be a part of the peace-building process.

He made the remark ahead of the peace conference in Switzerland.

While speaking to ANI the Ambassador said, “We need India in the peacebuilding process in Ukraine because the Indian leadership, India’s presence at the summit will reinforce all of the diplomatic forces around the world. And definitely, we need to find a peaceful solution and we need to create stable and prosperous conditions in Ukraine.”

Switzerland is hosting a summit on peace in Ukraine on June 15 and June 16 with the aim of developing a common understanding of a path towards a just and lasting peace in Ukraine.

“Definitely India will be present. This is what the Prime Minister said a couple of weeks ago. He confirms that India will be present but the level of presence will depend on timing, logistics and parallel commitment,” the envoy told the Indian news agency.

Zelenskyy congratulates Modi

Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskyy called Prime Minister Narendra Modi last week to congratulate him on the success of the recently-held general elections. 

While thanking him, the PM reaffirmed India’s commitment to further strengthen its partnership with Ukraine.
