United Nations, March 1

India has said that it was deeply concerned over the deteriorating situation in Ukraine and reiterated its call for immediate cessation of violence and end to hostilities, saying all differences can only be bridged through honest, sincere and sustained dialogue.

India's Permanent Representative to the UN Ambassador TS Tirumurti told a rare emergency special session of the UN General Assembly on Ukraine convened on Monday that New Delhi is doing whatever it can to undertake immediate and urgent evacuation efforts of Indian nationals still stranded in Ukraine.

"India is deeply concerned that the situation in Ukraine continues to deteriorate. We reiterate our call for immediate cessation of violence and end to hostilities,” Tirumurti said.

"My government firmly believes that there is no other choice but to return to the path of diplomacy,” he said.

Noting that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has advocated this strongly in his recent conversations with the leadership of the Russian Federation and Ukraine, Tirumurti said, "We reiterate our firm conviction that all differences can be bridged only through honest, sincere and sustained dialogue.”

He said there is an urgent and pressing humanitarian situation developing in Ukraine.

“India is doing whatever it can to undertake immediate and urgent evacuation efforts of Indian nationals who are still stranded in Ukraine. The safety and security of Indian nationals, including a large number of students, remains our top priority,” he said.

He noted that the complex and uncertain situation at the border crossings is “adversely impacting” the uninterrupted and predictable movement of people.

“This important humanitarian necessity must be immediately addressed,” he said.
