New Delhi: Russia, on Wednesday, dismissed comments made by the United States on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's meeting with Vladimir Putin and termed it as "nonsense". The statement came after US expressed "concerns about India’s relationship with Russia."
"It is very typical for US to comment. We have very diverse foreign policy. Russia and India are both global power. The comments are nonsense. They don't want peace, they want defeat for Russia."
The remark came after the State department expressed concerns and said that they directly talked to the Indian government about the energy and oil agreements between India and Russia.
Responding to a question asked by a reporter about the concerns around India and Russia's continued agreements on energy and oil, State department spokesperson Matthew Miller in a press conference said, "So, as I said yesterday, we have been quite clear about our concerns about India’s relationship with Russia. We have expressed those privately, directly to the Indian Government and continue to do so, and that hasn’t changed."

'Must Adhere To Principles'

On Monday also, the US called upon India to convey a clear message to Moscow that any resolution to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine must adhere to the principles of the UN Charter, which safeguard the territorial integrity of all member states, including Ukraine.
Responding to questions regarding Modi's visit to Moscow, Miller said that India is a strategic partner with whom the US engages in open and honest dialogue, including concerns about India's relationship with Russia.
"We did just see Modi, like (Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor) Orban, meet with (Ukrainian) President (Volodymyr) Zelenskyy. We thought that was an important step to take. And we would urge India, as we do any country when it engages with Russia, to make clear that any resolution to the conflict in Ukraine needs to be one that respects the UN charter, that respects Ukraine's territorial integrity, Ukraine's sovereignty," Miller said.
