Jaishankar said several countries want the Russia-Ukraine conflict to end conflict as soon as possible through dialogue and diplomacy.
“I think today India and Prime Minister Modi, in a way, have become the voice of the world, particularly of the developing countries because its (conflict’s) is being felt by the developing countries,” he said.
“Can you give one example of one neighbour resorting to terrorism day and night against another neighbour,” Jaishankar asked?
“We should never accept that any country has any right to support terrorism,” he added.
