NEW DELHI, December 5. /TASS/. India will not support any sanctions against Russia, Ajay Bisaria, the Secretary of the Ministry of External Affairs in charge of the Eurasian division, told reporters on Friday.
India has sent a clear signal that it will not support any anti-Russian economic sanctions, he said.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said earlier it was important to make further effort towards maintaining peaceful dialogue in Ukraine given the situation that had taken shape there. The Ministry of External Affairs said on its part the situation in Ukraine should be settled with account of the interests of all sides there.
Indian Sherpa in the G20, Suresh Prabhu, told TASS in September decisions on sanctions against whatever country including Russia should be taken by the world community at international platforms like the UN rather than by separate states.
He indicated that decisions taken by separate countries are sometimes politically motivated.
Different countries should work together to make the causes of any such decision clear and no country should undergo one or another form of discrimination covering up someone’s personal interests, Prabhu said.
