EAM Jaishankar Holds Telephonic Conversation With Ukrainian Counterpart, Exchanges Views On Escalating Conflict


New Delhi: In a telephonic conversation on Wednesday, Ukraine’s Foreign Minister, Dmytro Kuleba, briefed the External Affairs Minister, S Jaishankar, about the concerning rise in widespread air attacks initiated by Russia in Ukraine. During their conversation, the leaders explored collaboration on the “Peace Formula.” The Ukrainian foreign minister also outlined Ukraine’s vision for the upcoming Global Peace Summit of leaders.

In response to the escalating situation, both foreign ministers have agreed to convene the first meeting of the India-Ukraine Inter-Governmental Commission since 2018 in the near future. The rejuvenation of this bilateral mechanism is expected to facilitate comprehensive collaboration between the two nations as they navigate the challenges posed by the conflict.

In a recent tweet, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba apprised his Indian counterpart, Dr. S. Jaishankar, of the alarming escalation of terror and mass air attacks by Russia in Ukraine. The tweet, posted on the minister’s official Twitter account, highlighted the devastating impact of these attacks on civilians and infrastructure, prompting urgent discussions on finding a peaceful resolution to the ongoing conflict.

“My first call in 2024 was with @DrSJaishankar on Ukrainian-Indian relations. I informed my counterpart of Russia’s recent escalation of terror and mass air attacks, which caused civilian suffering and destruction. We discussed further cooperation on the Peace Formula. In this regard, I informed my counterpart of Ukraine’s vision for the Global Peace Summit of leaders,” posted Kuleba on X.

India and Ukraine have witnessed a series of diplomatic engagements, with Jaishankar assuring Kuleba in a phone conversation back in August 2022 that the next consignment of Indian humanitarian assistance would reach Ukraine soon.

The assurance was reiterated in Jaishankar’s tweet, where he stated, “A useful conversation with FM@DmytroKulebaof Ukraine today. Discussed advancing our bilateral cooperation in the year ahead. Exchanged views on the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.

Earlier this week, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Moscow will intensify attacks on military targets in Ukraine after an unprecedented attack over the weekend on the Russian city of Belgorod. The attack left 24 people dead and killed over 100 in Belgorod on Saturday. It came after Moscow launched a large-scale attack on Ukrainian cities.
