Jose Manuel Albares Bueno, the Foreign Minister of Spain, praised India’s efforts to promote peace amidst the Russia-Ukraine war, and he hoped that peace would be maintained within the principles of the United Nations Charter.
“India is doing a great effort to bring us together, to do the most, to allow us to express all points of view and I hope that we will all be united around peace and peace within the principles of the United Nations charter”, said the Minister. The Minister responded that he doesn’t believe Russians are in the mood to make a joint statement following the meeting when questioned about his expectations.
“The speech that I have heard and seen from the Russian Foreign Minister, I don’t think that Russia is ready to accept an acceptable statement. A statement that calls for peace and justice, for peace within the principles of the UN Charter. So, it is up to them, but I don’t think that they are in the mood of doing it”, he said.
When asked for more details about the discussion, Jose said he addressed issues like terrorism, cyber security, and climate change. He also mentioned the economic and global effects of the ongoing conflict in the World.
“We have also claimed that this war has an economic, social, and global effect and of course. Spain is eager to help all countries that are suffering from the security and energy crisis. We have large development funds to make sure that all that we are doing for Ukraine, as long as it’s needed is not to the detriment of Africa or Latin America”, said the Minister.
“I have addressed some of the global phenomena like Terrorism and cyber security, climate change. We need multilateralism, we need G20. Right now the war in Ukraine is not only a threat to Ukraine but it’s also a threat to multilateralism and to the basic principles of the multilateral world”, Jose Manuel added.
