PM Modi can play a vital role in peace settlement between Ukraine and Russia, stated by Mexican foreign minister Marcelo Casaubon at UN
New Delhi: To mediate a permanent peace between Russia and Ukraine, Mexico has proposed to the United Nations the formation of a committee that would include the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, Pope Francis, and UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.
Mexican foreign minister Marcelo Luis Casaubon made the suggestion while taking part in a UN Security Council discussion on Ukraine in New York.
This occurred a few days after Modi informed Putin that “the present era is not one of war” at their meeting in Samarkand, Uzbekistan, during the 22nd Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit. The western world, particularly the United States, France, and the United Kingdom, have appreciated the Indian prime minister’s statements.
Casaubon stated that Mexico believed the international community should now focus its best efforts on bringing about peace because of its pacifist vocation.
The committee’s goal, he said, would be to create a new mechanism for discussion and complementary venues for mediation in order to foster trust, ease tensions, and pave the way for long-term peace.
“Caseubon stated that the Mexican delegation will continue with the necessary consultations to help generate widespread support for the mediation efforts led by the UN secretary-general as well as for the committee, whose formation we hope will proceed with the support of the UN member states that so decide.”
“As the Secretary-General has said, it is time to act and commit to peace. To settle for war is always to go to the precipice, “he said.
