'I was sitting with the PM only'

External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar told in an interview to Hindustan Times that PM Modi had spoken to Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky during the Sumi rescue. PM Modi said, 'Look, this is very, very important, you know, we want your forces to stand and give us way. Our officials will work out the details in this regard. After this he gave instructions. The Foreign Minister said that I actually sat with the Prime Minister, and he called Putin and Zelensky. Jaishankar said that strengthen the hands of Narendra Modi because he is really the person who will support you in stormy times. Praising his government's efforts in moving 'from one crisis to another', the External Affairs Minister said that as we move forward in these difficult circumstances, you need very firm, steady, experienced hands.

If Modi wins, will Amit Shah become PM? BJP's 'Chanakya' clarified the situation, know what he said?

What is America saying in Pannu case?

In the Gurpatnam Singh Pannu case, Jaishankar said that some data brought by the Americans points to our attention. The data points were specific enough, serious enough for us to say. The External Affairs Minister said, 'Okay, we should investigate it, because it was not just an implication for them. We also assess some of the implications for us in those data points. So I think that's what's happening. But apart from that, should I say anything publicly? So my answer is no. On Canada's allegations over the killing of Hardeep Singh Nijjar last year, Jaishankar said our relationship has become a victim of 'Canadian collusion, compulsions or political football, whatever you call it'.

'Situation of border dispute with China'

Regarding the border dispute with China, the Foreign Minister said that the situation on LAC is that even today both of us are deployed ahead, that is, we are deployed far ahead of our traditional bases and camps. Secondly, we are deploying in far greater numbers than before 2020. He said that we have much more weapons than before 2020. They did it first, we responded to it, so they are responsible for it… So, the focus right now is on how we can resolve the patrolling issues. Jaishankar said that discuss about soldiers, weapons…this is an aspect of reducing tension.

Narendra Modi vs Amit Shah

On comparison with PM Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah, the External Affairs Minister said that different people have different styles of conversation and conveying their thoughts to others. The External Affairs Minister said that if you look at people like Prime Minister Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, some of these people are exceptionally effective in connecting with the public. The Foreign Minister said that I think I am more comfortable and more effective in doing things like town halls.
