United Nations General Assembly President Csaba Korosi on Monday hailed India’s calls for peace in Ukraine and across the world.
The Hungarian diplomat, while delivering the 40th Sapru House Lecture in New Delhi, said that the world is standing at the edge of the precipice. He thanked India for its continued and active engagement in the process. He also commended the Indian government for its commitment to the safety and security of Indian students who were present in Ukraine when the war broke out.
“We are approaching the first anniversary of the war in Ukraine that caused suffering and displacement. A war that has unleashed an energy and food crisis across the globe. I commend India for your calls for peace in Ukraine and across the world,” said the diplomat, who had arrived in India on Sunday on a three-day visit at the invitation of External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar.
Csaba Korosi said that the United Nations has been able to count on India on various issues, including fighting polio and sending peacekeeping troops. He called India’s leadership in the field of digital infrastructure, from building innovative governance to citizen-oriented services, as “transformational” in action.
