German Chancellor Olaf Scholz describes Jaishankar's remark about the "European attitude" as "Indian minister had a point"
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz stated that it "wouldn't be Europe's problem alone" if the law of the strong were to establish itself in international relations, arguing that Indian Foreign Affairs Minister S Jaishankar had a point when he spoke last year about the "European attitude".
When asked about India's stance in the Russia-Ukraine conflict during the 17th GLOBSEC Bratislava Forum in Slovakia in June of last year, EAM Jaishankar criticised the "European mindset" and stated: "...Somewhere, Europe has to grow out of the mindset that Europe's problems are the world's problems, but the world's problems are not Europe's problems." it is yours if it belongs to you,- however, "if it's mine, it's ours." I notice echoes of that.
On the opening day of the Munich Security Conference, the German Chancellor quoted the Indian External Affairs Minister as saying: "Europe has to get out of the mindset that Europe's problems are the world's problems, but the world's problems are not Europe's problems. This quotation from the Indian Foreign Minister is included in this year's Munich Security Report, and he has a point. If the law of the strong were to prevail in international relations, it wouldn't just be Europe's problem. Nevertheless, highlighting our shared ideals is insufficient if you want to be taken seriously as a European or North American in Jakarta, New Delhi, and to do something. In general, we must address the interests and issues of these nations as a fundamental requirement for cooperation. And for that reason, I felt it was crucial that the G Seven Summit in June included more than just representatives from Asia, Africa, and Latin America. In addition to the effects of climate change and the Covid-19 pandemic, he continued, "I really wanted to engage with these regions to find solutions to the fundamental difficulties they confront, which are increased poverty and hunger, partially as a result of Russia's war.
After speaking on the "European worldview," EAM Jaishankar questioned the relationship between China, India, and the situation in Ukraine. Today, a connection is being established. A connection between what's happening and China and India i.e. Ukraine. Let's go, guys! China and India developed long before the Ukrainian crisis. The Chinese don't need a precedent from somewhere else to decide whether to interact with us or not, or whether to be challenging or not.
