India’s Permanent Representative at the UNSC, T S Tirumurti said that India’s interest is at solution that can provide for immediate simplification of tensions taking into account the lawful security interests of all countries and targeted towards securing long term peace and stability in the region and beyond.
While Delhi’s statement talked about “legitimate security interests of all countries”, it is widely sensed as fairly aligned with the Russian interests.
TS Tirumurti also reiterated India’s call for the peaceful resolution of the situation by earnest and sustained diplomatic efforts to ensure that concerns of all sides are resolved through constructive dialogue.
This is India’s second official statement on the Ukraine issue which is a more expansive one after the statement made by the MEA spokesperson last week.

India was among three countries along with Kenya and Gabon to refrain from voting which reflect maintain its neutral position and not side with either bloc.
