Where were you when order in Asia faced threat: EAM to Europe

NEW DELHI: External affairs minister S Jaishankar on Tuesday panned Europe for questioning India’s Russia-Ukraine policy as he reminded the Europeans that they were not actually bending over backwards to address India’s concerns when the rules-based order was under threat in Asia.
“There are equally pressing issues in other parts of the world like Afghanistan and challenges in Asia… when rules-based order was under threat in Asia, the advice we got from Europe was to do more trade. At least we are not giving you that advice,” he said.
