India To Participate In G-7 And Ukraine Peace Summits Says PM Modi

India will participate in key summits promoting global peace, security, and development, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has confirmed, referring to invitations to attend the G-7 meeting and the Ukraine peace summit. In an interview with PTI, PM Modi highlighted India’s dedication to advocating for human-centred development for a prosperous and peaceful world and raising the issues of the Global South.

Modi stated that his availability would be contingent on schedule, arrangements, and other obligations. June 13–15 will see the G-7 summit in Italy, while June 15–16 will see the Ukraine peace summit in Switzerland. According to PM Modi, these invitations are in line with the idea of “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” (the world is one family) and demonstrate India’s important role in world affairs.

The EU is a “non-enumerated member.” The G-7, which consists of the United States, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom, is based on the ideas of pluralism, liberal democracy, and representative government. The ongoing peace negotiations in Ukraine, where Kyiv has asked India to play a constructive role in countering Russia, highlight India’s growing importance.

Dmytro Kuleba, the foreign minister of Ukraine, met with Dr S. Jaishankar, his counterpart from India, in March for discussions on bilateral relations and the Peace Formula.
