India will take part in the Ukraine peace negotiations, which Saudi Arabia will host on August 5 and 6, a spokesperson for the foreign ministry announced on Thursday.

In order to consider the peace plan put forth by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy earlier this year, Saudi Arabia has invited Western nations, Ukraine, and some significant emerging nations.

According to Arindam Bagchi, a spokesman for the Indian foreign ministry, Jeddah has extended an invitation to New Delhi for a meeting.

India will take part in this competition. Our participation is consistent with our long-held belief that conversation and diplomacy are the best course of action, he said.

The negotiations will be followed, according to Monday’s statement from Russia, which was not invited. According to Ukraine, the Kremlin was not welcome at the negotiations.

According to Zelenskiy’s proposal, all Russian forces must leave Ukraine, and its post-Soviet borders must be restored. On the margins of the G7 conference in Japan in May, the leader of Ukraine had extended an invitation to India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi to participate in his peace plan. The refusal of New Delhi to denounce Moscow for the invasion of Ukraine last year has angered a number of western countries. As a result of record-high oil purchases, India has grown commerce with Russia at the same time.

Modi did, though, inform Putin that this is “not an era of war” last year.

India will host the summit meeting in September as the G20 bloc’s chair this year. Russian President Vladimir Putin, Chinese President Xi Jinping, and other world leaders have all been invited.
