Modi: Will he, or won’t he? That’s the question

Amid the Russia-Ukraine war, QUAD leaders Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, US President Joe Biden, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida convened a virtual summit. The leaders of the four countries discussed and analyzed the situation of the ongoing war and humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. It is not yet known officially, what was discussed between the US-India-Australia- Japan heads when India was the lone abstainer in United Nations while the other three opposed Russian aggression on Ukraine.

Meanwhile, some US diplomats told media of US and India, that Biden categorically told Modi to condemn the Russian aggression in Ukraine. According to them, Biden told Modi that “there is no room for excuses or equivocation.” A recent US cable to its diplomats described India and UAE, saying “position of neutrality on Ukraine put them in Russia camp.”

“Developments in Ukraine were discussed in the meeting, including its humanitarian implications. The Prime Minister emphasized the need to return to a path of dialogue and diplomacy. The leaders also discussed other topical issues, including the situation in Southeast Asia, the Indian Ocean region, and the Pacific Islands. Prime Minister reiterated the importance of adhering to the UN Charter, international law and respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity,” said the statement issued by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Office.

The meeting reviewed the progress on QUAD initiatives since the September 2021 QUAD Summit. The leaders agreed on accelerating cooperation, with an objective to achieve concrete outcomes by the summit in Japan later this year. The QUAD leaders agreed to stay in touch and to work towards an ambitious agenda for the forthcoming Leaders’ Summit in Japan.

“Prime Minister underlined that the QUAD must remain focused on its core objective of promoting peace, stability, and prosperity in the Indo-Pacific region. He called for concrete and practical forms of cooperation within the QUAD, in areas like Humanitarian and Disaster Relief, debt sustainability, supply chains, clean energy, connectivity, and capacity-building,” said PM Modi’s Office.

  1. This is the same stupid argument “you are with us or against us”. This ‘educated and evolved” mind set is stuck in the binary, don’t understand the concept of plurality. SO sad. India will not and should not buck under pressure. It is not a pushover anymore.
