Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky yesterday on the sidelines of the G7 summit in Japan’s Hiroshima. This is the first in-person meeting between the two leaders since the start of the Russia-Ukraine conflict in February last year. During the meeting, PM Modi assured President Zelensky that India would do whatever it could to help resolve the situation. India’s National Security Advisor Ajit Doval was also present.

G7 summit: PM Modi meets Ukraine president

The Ukrainian leader was invited to the summit by Japan, the current chair of the powerful G7 grouping. Prime Minister Modi left for Japan earlier this morning to attend three sessions at the summit as part of his three-nation tour, which will also take him to Papua New Guinea and Australia. Last month, Ukraine’s First Deputy Foreign Minister Emine Dzhaparova visited India and handed over a letter from President Zelensky to PM Modi.

PM Modi meets Ukraine president: Prime Minister Modi has maintained that the Russia-Ukraine conflict can only be resolved through dialog and diplomacy and that India is ready to contribute to any peace efforts. In an interview with the Japanese newspaper Yomiuri Shimbun, PM Modi said India advocates for dialog and diplomacy to resolve disputes and prioritize the well-being of people affected by the rising costs of essentials.

In a phone conversation with President Zelensky on October 4 last year, PM Modi said there can be “no military solution” and that India is ready to contribute to any peace efforts. The PM has also spoken to Russian President Vladimir Putin several times since the start of the war.

President Zelensky’s visit comes a day after US President Joe Biden informed the G7 leaders in Hiroshima that the US would support the joint allied training of Ukrainian pilots on fourth-generation fighter jets, including the F-16. At the G7 summit, PM Modi emphasized the need for dialogue and diplomacy to resolve the Russia-Ukraine conflict and India’s commitment to contributing to any peace efforts. He also stressed the importance of prioritizing the well-being of those affected by the conflict.
