US has said that it will welcome India’s role in achieving “lasting peace” in Ukraine.

US Department of State spokesperson Matthew Miller said that it will welcome the role that India or any other country could play in helping achieve a "just and lasting peace" while recognising Ukraine's territorial integrity and sovereignty.

Miller in response to whether India or PM Narendra Modi can play a part in putting an end to the Ukraine conflict said, "We welcome a role that India or any other country could play in helping achieve a just and lasting peace that recognizes Ukraine's territorial integrity and Ukraine's sovereignty," as per PTI report.

He claimed that the conflict with Ukraine has been a "strategic failure" for Russia.

He added Russia has suffered loss of military personnel and equipment. 

He said the US welcomes the international support that Ukraine has received since the beginning of the conflict.

"The war has been strategic failure for Russia which has seen enormous loss of both military personnel but military equipment. They have seen their standing in the world affected. They have seen their economy crippled by the sanctions and export controls we have imposed," Miller said.

He added: “We welcome the international support that Ukraine has received since the beginning of the conflict."

In June this year, PM Modi and US President Joe Biden expressed concern over the conflict in Ukraine and mourned its "terrible and tragic" humanitarian consequences. 

Both the leaders had called for respect for international law, principles of the United Nations charter and territorial integrity and sovereignty.

"President Biden and Prime Minister Modi expressed their deep concern over the conflict in Ukraine and mourned its terrible and tragic humanitarian consequences. The leaders underscored the serious and growing impacts of the war on the global economic system, including on food, fuel and energy security, and critical supply chains. 
They called for greater efforts to mitigate the consequences of the war, especially in the developing world," their joint statement had said.

"Both countries further pledge to render continuing humanitarian assistance to the people of Ukraine. They called for respect for international law, principles of the UN charter, and territorial integrity and sovereignty. Both countries concurred on the importance of post-conflict reconstruction in Ukraine," it added.
