Indian Foreign Minister Dr. S Jaishankar expressed concern over the Ukraine crisis at a meeting of the United Nations Security Council on Thursday. He called for an immediate end to the Russo-Ukraine war. S Jaishankar said that the Ukraine war is a matter of grave concern for the entire international community. He said that India has always appealed to end this war through dialogue and diplomacy. Let us tell you that the war between Russia and Ukraine has been going on for more than 6 months. Jaishankar said that the impact of this war can be felt all over the world. Due to the demand of time, this war should be ended as soon as possible.

During this, S Jaishankar also mentioned about Prime Minister Modi. The External Affairs Minister said that recently PM Modi had said that this is not the time for war. Significantly, during the SCO summit, Prime Minister Modi had appealed for peace. Talking to Russian President Vladimir Putin, PM Modi said that this is not the era of war.

India targets China

The External Affairs Minister further said that in the event of any war, violation of human rights and international law cannot be justified from anywhere. The Security Council should send a clear message in this regard. Politics should never be provided cover to avoid accountability. During this, S Jaishankar also targeted China in gestures.

He said that we have seen in this chamber recently, when it comes to sanctioning some of the most dreaded terrorists in the world. He further said that if credibility is to be ensured then there should be continuity. Let us inform that China had blocked the proposal of America and India to blacklist Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist Sajid Mir in the United Nations. This is Beijing’s third such move in four months.

Mir is the mastermind of the Mumbai attack

Mir is one of the wanted terrorists of India and the main conspirator of the 2008 Mumbai attacks. Beijing on Thursday blocked a US proposal to blacklist Mir as a global terrorist under the UN Security Council’s 1267 Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee. India has supported this proposal. Under this, it is proposed to attach Mir’s properties and impose travel and arms restrictions on him.

Mir is India’s most wanted terrorist and the US has placed a reward of 5 million dollars (over 400 million) on him for his role in the 26/11 Mumbai attacks. In June this year, he was sentenced to more than 15 years in prison by an anti-terrorism court in Pakistan in a terrorism financing case.
