Central India’s Strategic Move in UNSC Vote on Ukraine Crisis

1 min read

During Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla’s visit to New York, India chose to abstain from a resolution proposed by Russia regarding the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. Unfortunately, the resolution did not pass the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) vote, receiving only yes votes from Russia and China.

Shringla arrived in New York shortly before the UN General Assembly and Security Council were set to vote on draft resolutions regarding the humanitarian crisis on Thursday.

India’s Permanent Representative at the UN, T S Tirumurti, expressed his happiness at welcoming Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla to New York. Shringla was scheduled to take part in the UN Security Council meeting focusing on cooperation between the UN and the League of Arab States.

Shringla’s presence in New York, amid visits from a number of foreign ministers to India and meetings with the foreign ministers of Greece and Oman, underscores the significance that India places on this current series of resolutions.
