Zelenskyy invites PM Modi to visit Ukraine, both discuss Global Peace Summit

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has extended a warm invitation to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to visit Ukraine at “a convenient time.”

The invitation came during a phone conversation between the two leaders, during which Zelenskyy congratulated PM Modi on his recent election victory and wished for the swift formation of the government.

Expressing his desire for continued productive collaboration for the benefit of the Indian people, President Zelenskyy highlighted the importance of India’s participation in the upcoming Global Peace Summit.

Emphasizing the significance of India’s engagement at the highest level, Zelenskyy sought Modi’s commitment to contributing to discussions aimed at promoting peace and stability on the global stage.

Earlier, Prime Minister Modi, thanking Zelenskyy after he congratulated him on the third consecutive electoral victory in the Lok Sabha polls, said on Wednesday that India will continue to support peace, security, and prosperity for everyone in the region.

PM Modi is set for a third consecutive term as Prime Minister of India, with the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) emerging victorious in the parliamentary elections.

Zelenskyy also mentioned that everyone in the world recognizes India’s role in global affairs and is “looking forward to seeing India attend the Peace Summit in Switzerland.”

Notably, in April, Swiss Foreign Minister Ignazio Cassis announced that Switzerland would host a high-level international conference in June with more than 100 countries invited to help chart a path towards peace in Ukraine after more than two years of war.

In May, the Ministry of External Affairs stated that India had received an invitation from the Swiss side, but the decision regarding participation is still pending.
