Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov arrives in India, to meet PM Modi, Jaishankar on Friday


NEW DELHI: Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov arrived in India on Thursday on a two-day official go to, his first journey to the nation since Moscow launched its invasion of Ukraine final month.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova stated Lavrov will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Foreign Minister S Jaishankar on Friday.

A media advisory on Lavrov’s go to issued by the Ministry of External Affairs has not talked about any assembly between the Russian overseas minister and the prime minister.

People accustomed to the preparations for the talks stated India can also be more likely to press for guaranteeing well timed supply of varied navy {hardware} in addition to parts of the S-400 missile techniques by Russia.

The Russian overseas minister arrived in India after concluding a two-day go to of China.

His go to to India coincides with that of US Deputy National Security Adviser Daleep Singh and British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss.

Last week, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi visited India.

EU Special Envoy for the Indo-Pacific Gabriele Visentin visited New Delhi this week.

Unlike many different main powers, India has not but criticised Russia for its invasion of Ukraine and it abstained from the votes on the UN platforms in condemning the Russian aggression.

However, final Thursday, India abstained on a decision pushed by Russia on the humanitarian disaster in Ukraine, which was seen as reflective of its impartial place on the battle.

India has been urgent for the decision of the disaster by means of diplomacy and dialogue.

Modi has held cellphone conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin on February 24, March 2 and March 7.

Modi had spoken to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy twice.

Last week, Jaishankar stated in Parliament that India’s place on the Ukraine battle has been “steadfast and consistent” and that it has been in search of fast cessation of violence.
