Expressing the hope of ending the Russia-Ukraine war National Conference chief Farooq Abdullah said Prime Minister Narendra Modi would be successful to end this war.
Meanwhile, the Russia-Ukraine war has been stretched for nearly nine months and has created havoc on the global economic situation.
“I am happy that India has got the presidency of the G20 Summit. It could be that India has the burden of all these countries. And I hope that the Prime Minister will be successful in ending the Russia-Ukraine war which has created havoc on the economic condition,” Abdullah said.
Earlier in February 2022, the war started in which thousands of people lost their lives on both sides.
In the G-20 communique in Bali Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s message to Russian President Vladimir Putin echoed that, “Today’s era must not be of war.”
Moreover, in a bilateral meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation summit in Samarkand in September PM Modi said to President Putin that, “now is not the time for war”.
“It is essential to uphold international law and the multilateral system that safeguards peace and stability. This includes defending all the Purposes and Principles enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations and adhering to international humanitarian law, including the protection of civilians and infrastructure in armed conflicts. The use or threat of use of nuclear weapons is inadmissible. The peaceful resolution of conflicts, efforts to address crises, as well as diplomacy and dialogue, are vital. Today’s era must not be of war,” the G20 communique said.
Taking a swipe at Union Home Minister Amit Shah over his “will talk to Kashmiri youth instead of Pakistan remark he said, “The other thing is that regarding the problems that we have with our neighbor, it may be possible that the countries will find a solution to it. Home Minister says that he will talk to the youth and not Pakistan. But the fight is against Pakistan, not the children. I am tired of telling him to have talks with Pakistan. India has to talk to Pakistan at some point in time.”
“There is nothing like radicalization. We are fighting a low-intensity war. There is no other way,” Abdullah said.
Elections that are due in Jammu and Kashmir the former chief minister said, to conduct the polls it’s up to the Election Commission and the Centre.
However, former CM Abdullah further said, “As far as the elections are concerned, we don’t know when they will be conducted. It is my duty to come and talk to the people and bring out their condition in front of the parliament and the Centre. It is up to the Election Commission and the government of India when to conduct the elections.”
