US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Tuesday lauded Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s remark on the Russian-Ukraine war and said he ‘couldn’t agree more’, with the Indian PM’s statement that “this is not an era or the time for war”.
“I really want to emphasize what PM Modi said, I think he captured, as well as anyone I have heard, fundamentally what this moment is about as he said, this is not an era, the time for war & we could not agree more,” Blinken said during a joint press conference with External Affairs Minister Dr S Jaishankar.
Recently, PM Modi during his highly anticipated bilateral meeting with Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the SCO Summit told the Russian premier that this was not the era of war. “Today’s era isn’t of war and I’ve spoken to you about it on call. Today, we’ll get the opportunity to talk about how can we progress on the path of peace. India and Russia have stayed together with each other for several decades,” Modi told Putin during the meeting.
Calling the partnership between India and the US the ‘most consequential’ in the world, Blinken said no two countries have a greater ability, opportunity and responsibility to try to shape the future.
