During the talks, Modi and Zelensky discussed furthering the India-Ukraine partnership.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called PM Modi on Thursday and congratulated him on his victory in the Lok Sabha elections. After this, he appealed for India's participation in the peace conference to be held in Switzerland on June 15-16.

Zelensky gave this information through a post on the social media platform. He wrote, “I wished PM Modi all the best for forming the government in India as soon as possible, so that he can continue working for the development of Indians. We also talked about the Global Peace Summit. I hope that India will definitely participate in it.”

Apart from this, Zelensky also invited PM Modi to Ukraine. PM Modi thanked Zelensky for his congratulatory message. In a post on social media, Modi said, “It was a pleasure to talk to President Zelensky. I thanked him for congratulating NDA on its historic victory in the general elections. We both agreed to strengthen the partnership between India and Ukraine.”

Ukraine made a 10 point plan for the Swiss Peace Summit
Earlier on June 5, Zelensky had also congratulated PM Modi for his third term. The purpose of the Ukraine Peace Summit to be held in Switzerland is to discuss options related to ending the two and a half year long war between Russia and Ukraine. For this, Ukraine has also prepared a 10 point plan. This plan talks about the withdrawal of Russian troops from Ukraine and holding Russia responsible for war crimes.

However, Russia has not been invited to this conference. According to Switzerland's Foreign Ministry, so far 80 countries have confirmed their participation in this conference. According to Zelensky's spokesperson, 107 countries and international organizations have agreed to participate in the conference.

Meanwhile, US President Biden has refused to attend this conference. US Vice President Kamala Harris will attend this summit in his place.

'Ukraine wants to provoke other countries against Russia in the conference'
Apart from this, China also refused to attend this summit at the end of last month. Putin, who visited China last month after being elected as the President of Russia for the 5th time, had said that through the Swiss summit Ukraine wants to incite other countries against Russia and get them on its side.

After this, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov suggested that China should organize a conference in which both Ukraine and Russia should be invited. Through this, talks on peace can be held.

Earlier on March 20, PM Modi had called Russian President Putin and Ukrainian President Zelensky on the same day. During the conversation with both the leaders at a difference of a few hours, he had talked about stopping the war.

After congratulating Putin on becoming the President for the 5th time, PM Modi had said that Russia-Ukraine should resolve the issue through diplomacy and dialogue. India has always supported an early end to the war and peace. During the call, Putin and Zelensky also invited Modi to visit their respective countries after the Lok Sabha elections.

In May 2023, 15 months after the war, PM Modi met Zelensky during the G7 summit in Hiroshima.

PM Modi met Zelensky once, said- this war is an issue of humanity
Since the start of the Russia-Ukraine war, PM Modi has met Ukraine's President Zelensky only once. This happened last year during the G7 summit in Hiroshima city of Japan. According to media reports, Prime Minister Modi had told Zelensky that the Ukraine war is not an issue of economy and politics, but of humanity. India is ready to take every step to end this war.
