The crisis in Ukraine figured prominently in talks between External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and his visiting British counterpart Liz Truss on Thursday.
In her opening comments, Truss said it is important to respect the principles of sovereignty, territorial integrity and international law. In his remarks, Jaishankar talked about the progress in the implementation of the Roadmap 2030 that was adopted in May last year to further broadbase ties.
Ahead of the talks, the British High Commission, in a statement, said Truss will convey to Jaishankar that Russia's invasion of Ukraine underlines the importance of democracies to work together to deter "aggressors" and reduce vulnerability to "coercion".
"Foreign Secretary Liz Truss is in India today as part of a wider diplomatic push following Russia's illegal invasion of Ukraine last month," the statement said.
