India’s Deliberation on Attending Ukraine Peace Summit

As the Swiss government extends invitations for a global Ukraine peace conference in June, diplomatic deliberations intensify in India regarding its attendance. Despite invitations extended to 160 heads of state and government, including leaders from the G-7 nations, India remains non-committal, awaiting the conclusion of its electoral process in early June.

While diplomatic sources emphasize India’s significance on the global stage, the government maintains a diplomatically “neutral” position, abstaining from taking sides in the conflict. Amidst Russia’s dismissal of the conference as “futile,” China expresses openness to a dialogue including both Russia and Ukraine. As discussions unfold, India’s decision is eagerly anticipated, poised to shape its stance on the ongoing conflict and its role in international diplomacy.
