NEW DELHI, September 21 (RIA Novosti) - India stands for the peaceful resolution of the Ukrainian crisis, involving all parties, the country's Prime Minister Narendra Modi told CNN in an interview, broadcasted Sunday.
"Ultimately, India's view point is that efforts need to be made to sit together and talk, and to resolve problems in an ongoing process," Modi said.
"There is a saying in India that the person who should throw a stone first is the person who has not committed any sins," prime minister replied to the question about India's stance on the alleged role of Russia in the Ukrainian crisis – the topic, never particularly commented by Delhi.
Narendra Mori gave an interview to a Western television channel for the first time since his assumption of office in May. His first visit to the United States as the leader of India, including a meeting with US President Barack Obama is scheduled next week. In 2005, Modi, then chief minister of India's state of Gujarat, was denied entrance to the United States over a religious riot in his state, which led to around 1,000 deaths.
