India greets Ukraine on its Independence Day
India's External Affairs Minister (EAM) S Jaishankar has extended greetings to minister Dmytro Kuleba and the people of Ukraine on the occasion of the country's Independence Day.
Taking to Twitter, Jaishankar said that India is committed to a broad-based relationship with Ukraine that encompasses several domains. "Greetings to FM @DmytroKuleba and the people of Ukraine on the occasion of their Independence Day. Committed to our broad-based relationship that encompasses so many domains," he said.
In a phone conversation held earlier this month, Jaishankar had assured Kuleba that the next consignment of Indian humanitarian assistance will reach the conflict-ravaged country soon.
The two ministers also discussed recent developments in Ukraine and their global repercussions.
"Appreciated the conversation today with FM @DmytroKuleba of Ukraine. Discussed recent developments in the conflict and its continuing global repercussions. Assured that the next consignment of Indian humanitarian assistance will be reaching very soon," Jaishankar tweeted.
Since the beginning of the conflict in Ukraine, India has consistently called for an immediate cessation of hostilities and an end to the violence. India has called upon both sides to return to the path of diplomacy and dialogue, and also expressed its support for all diplomatic efforts to end the conflict.
India on August 23 said it remained concerned with the situation at the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP) in Ukraine, saying that any accident involving nuclear facilities could potentially have disastrous consequences.
