This week, India had abstained on the procedural resolution calling for a rare urgent session by the UN General Assembly on Russia’s aggression against Ukraine.
The United States enjoys a “close and friendly” relationship with India, an official from the Joe Biden administration said on Monday when he expressed his nation’s “concerns” towards New Delhi about Russia.
The week before, India had abstained on the procedural resolution calling for a rare urgent session by the UN General Assembly on Russia’s aggression against Ukraine.
“We have a close connection with India. We have discussed our concerns and shared issues,” US State Department Spokesperson Ned Price told reporters on Monday in response to questions about Washington’s reaction that India abstained twice in voting in the UN Security Council vote on Russia’s attacks on Ukraine.
The relationship between India and Russia differs from the one the US has with Russia, and that’s okay as the Biden administration has previously stated in a statement that Washington has asked each country with leverage Moscow to leverage it to safeguard the international order that is based on rules.
“We are in regular contact in regular contact with Indian partners. We maintain regular contact and regular engagement with one of our Emirati partners. We maintain regular communication with our European allies and with our European partners. At every level, we’re engaging in discussions.” Price explained.
European Leader Vladimir Putin reported a particular military function in Ukraine this week.
Russia has launched numerous attacks against various areas of the eastern and central regions of Ukraine. It has drawn widespread condemnation and sanctions from multiple nations, including the US.
In the meantime, the US Senate Subcommittee on Near East, Southeast, Central Asia, and Counterterrorism has scheduled an inquiry into the country’s policy toward India. The hearing has been set for the 2nd of March.
