French President Emmanuel Macron told world leaders during the UN General Assembly session that Prime Secretary Narendra Modi was right when he said to Russian President Vladimir Putin that this is not the time to go to war.
Modi who had a meeting with Putin on the occasion of the 22nd session of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization in Uzbekistan’s Samarkand informed Putin Russian president to be aware that “today’s era is not of war”. Modi had talked to Putin numerous times on the phone in relation to this matter and stressed the importance of diplomacy, democracy, and dialogue.
“Narendra Modi the prime minister of India was correct in his assertion that”The time is not to go to war. This is not a time to take taking revenge at the West or to oppose the West against the East. It’s the time to allow our sovereign and equal states to meet the problems that we have to face,” Macron said during his speech at the opening of the General Debate at the 77th session of the UN General Assembly on Tuesday.
“This is why there is an urgent need to create an updated agreement with the northern and south – an agreement that is respectful of the environment, for food security, and for education. It’s not the time to focus on block thinking, but to create an alliance of specific actions to balance legitimate concerns and the common good,” the minister said.
At Samarkand, Putin had told Modi that he knew what is his “position on the conflict in Ukraine and the concerns that you constantly express”.
“We will do everything we can to stop it whenever we can. Unfortunately, the other side that is the government of Ukraine declared that they were abandoning the negotiations process and stated that it would pursue its goals through military means” on the battlefield” according to the saying. However, we will be in touch with you regarding what’s happening in Ukraine,” Putin had said.
In the UNGA session on Tuesday, Macron expressed hope the world community will agree to the reform of the UN Security Council “so that it is more representative, welcome new permanent members and remain able to play its full role by restricting the use of the veto in cases of mass crimes”.
In his speech on the first day of the General Debate, the French president stated that “there are some countries that have opted for a kind of neutrality with regard to the current war. People who say they’re not aligned with the United States are incorrect. They’re making a historic mistake”.
“The fight of the non-aligned movement an act of peace. They have fought for peace, the sovereignty of the states, as well as territorial integrity. People who do not speak up today are that they are a part of the cause that is a result of a new form of imperialism an order that tramples on the present order. There’s no way to achieve peace here.” “Russia has been currently looking to defend an unjustified double standard, but the conflict in Ukraine should not be one that makes anyone unaffected,” Macron said.
