Bharat’s economic rise and military might have started to be reflected in its global stature. With about 18% of the world population and a GDP value of US $3.5 trillion, India is now a superpower in the world. A leading contributor to world peace, functional democracy, and responsible nuclear power, Bharat’s credentials are valued now. Moreover, the Nation’s stable economy, multicultural peaceful society, democratic political structure, and centuries-old civilization make it a respected and formidable power. The leader who rules the country through democratic means also carries the voice of 1.3 billion people, which has the capacity to decide the fate of the world.
Considering all these qualities of the nation, PM Modi’s statement had significant value in the Ukraine war. That’s why the world’s eyes were concentrated on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation.
Prime Minister Modi’s no holds barred talks with Putin
On the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit in the Uzbekistan city of Samarkand, PM Modi’s talks with Russian President Valdmir Putin are attracting global praise.
While talking to the Russian President, Prime Minister Modi stated that today’s era is not of war. Conflict can be solved through democracy, diplomacy and dialogue. Appraising Putin about the cost of war, PM Modi further said, “..today the biggest concerns facing the world and especially the developing countries are the problems of food security, fuel security and fertilizers.”
While responding to PM Modi, Putin said that he understood Delhi’s concerns about the conflict in Ukraine and wanted it to end as soon as possible. Putin further said, “We will do our best to stop this as soon as possible. However, unfortunately, the opposing side, the leadership of Ukraine, announced its refusal to continue negotiations and declared that they wanted to achieve their goals by military means, as they say on the battlefield. But nevertheless, we will always keep you informed of what is happening there.”
World Praised PM Modi’s Words with Putin
As the world’s eyes were fully concentrated on the meeting, PM Modi’s outright rejection of the Russian war in Ukraine in front of Putin was taken on a praised note. Everywhere, on social media, news channels and print media, people were praising Modi’s statesmanship on the issue.
The Washington Post reported in a headline that “Modi rebukes Putin over the war in Ukraine”.

The global coverage of Prime Minister Modi’s statement reflects the weight he carries in the world. It also states that the global stature of India has taken a significant jump under the PM’s assertive and firm international policies. On one hand, India does not hesitate to increase its business relations with Russia in the national interest. On the other hand, the PM’s outright rejection of war in front of the Russian president shows his conviction in world peace. In a way, Bharat under PM Modi does not compromise on either national interest or national principles. We followed an independent foreign policy that is now being recognised by the world.
