US asked India to mediate on Russia-Ukraine war?

India's foreign minister S. Jaishankar spoke on the possibility of India acting as a mediator in the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

Days after Russia's foreign minister visited India and said that if Delhi acts as a mediator in the Ukraine conflict, no one will oppose it, India's foreign minister spoke on the issue in the US.

S. Jaishankar was in Washington, DC for the 2+2 Dialogue when he was asked if America has sought India's help as a mediator. He said, "No, there was no specific message or communication suggested to us. That's not how it works. I think what you are having at this point of time is a set of countries who have relations with all parties concerned."

Jaishankar added, "Ukraine situation is something that worries everyone. It also has consequences for most people. So, there's a natural interest in the international community to see what we can do to help ease the situation, and hopefully sort out the situation."

"Our discussions with Americans were more about what is it we can all do to encourage an early cessation of hostilities. That's where the focus should be. We do think a large part of the international community and some other countries have taken an active interest, and think along similar lines," said Jaishankar.
