In a statement, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said Modi reiterated his call for an early cessation of violence, and conveyed India’s readiness to contribute in any way to the peace efforts.

Lavrov also updated the Prime Minister on the progress of decisions taken during the India-Russia bilateral Summit held in December 2021, the PMO said.

Among those present for the talks were external affairs minister S Jaishankar, national security advisor Ajit Doval and foreign secretary Harshvardhan Shringla. Lavrov was also accompanied by two officials.
