India demands a fair and independent investigation
The foreign minister said that he would like to emphasize to the Security Council today that even in situations of conflict, there can be no justification for violation of human rights or international law. He said that where any such act takes place, it is necessary that it should be investigated in an impartial and independent manner. India had maintained this view regarding the killings in Bucha. The Council will also remember that at that time India supported the call for an independent inquiry into the Bucha incident.
The impact of conflict on the world
Jaishankar told the council that in a globalized world, the effects of conflict are being felt even in distant regions. He said that all of us have experienced its consequences in the form of rising costs and real shortage of food grains, fertilizers and fuels.
S Jaishankar stressed on the need to end the Russo-Ukraine war, saying that the need of the hour is to end the Ukraine conflict and return to the negotiating table. This council is the most powerful symbol of diplomacy. It has to keep living up to its purpose. The global order we all subscribe to at the United Nations is based on international law, the United Nations Charter, and respect for the territorial integrity and sovereignty of all states. These principles should be upheld without exception.
