India will do its best to end the war, Modi tells Zelenksy

India will do “everything” necessary to resolve the war in Ukraine, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Saturday during a meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, on the sidelines of the G-7 summit in Hiroshima, Japan. Mr. Modi expressed anguish at the devastation caused by the war and conveyed his personal desire to end the hostilities, during the interaction which was his first with Mr. Zelensky since the war began in February 2022.

“You know much more than any of us the pain of war but I could very well understand your pain and the pain of the Ukrainian people when our children narrated the circumstances in your country after they were brought back last year,” Mr. Modi told Mr. Zelensky.
