Leaders from nearly 90 countries came together in Switzerland to reiterate their commitment to the “territorial integrity” of Ukraine on Sunday. The meeting was attended by Indian authorities, with the Ministry of External Affairs later reaffirming the country's support for a ‘lasting an peaceful resolution’. New Delhi however avoided association with any any communique or document emerging from the Summit.

“The Indian delegation attended the Opening and Closing Plenary Sessions of the Summit. India did not associate itself with any communique/document emerging from this Summit. India's participation in the Summit, as well as in the preceding NSA/Political Director-level meetings based on Ukraine's Peace Formula, was in line with our consistent approach to facilitate a lasting and peaceful resolution to the conflict through dialogue and diplomacy,” read a statement from the Ministry of External Affairs.

The Ministry also stressed the need for a ‘sincere and practical engagement’ between Ukraine and Russia to resolve the largest European conflict since World War II. It assured that India would continue to remain “engaged with all stakeholders as well as both the parties” to contribute to all efforts to bring about an early and abiding peace.

The weekend summit in Switzerland concluded on Sunday with dozens of countries throwing their support to Ukraine's "territorial integrity" and calling for talks among all parties to find a lasting solution to the conflict.
