It is up to India to decide what role it should play on an issue. India should firmly tell Biden that India has never encouraged someone to initiate a fight and then leave them to die. When the actual war breaks out, backing off without helping them has never been India’s policy.
Washington (USA) – In the Russia-Ukraine war, there has been a united front throughout NATO and the Pacific region. While reacting to India’s stand, Biden said in the Quad, India is somewhat shaky but Japan and Australia have been extremely strong. Due to the war, many countries along with the USA have imposed sanctions on Russia, however, India has not imposed any sanctions on Russia and Indian oil refineries continued to buy oil from Russia at discounted rates.
