only

Prime
Minister
Narendra
Modi,
Pope
Francis
and
UN
Secretary-General
Antonio
Guterres
to
mediate
permanent
peace
between

The
proposal
was
put
forward
by

Luis
Ebrard
Casaubón,
the
foreign
minister
of
Mexico,
while
participating
in
a
UN
Security
Council
debate
on
Ukraine

Norway’s

minister
on
Ukraine:
‘The
war
has
to
stop’

Norway’s
prime
minister,
Jonas
Gahr
Støre,
believes
the
world

with
one
notable
holdout

is
on
the
same
page:
“The
war
has
to
stop.”
“I
heard
it
from
China.
I
heard
it
from
India.
I
heard
it
from
African
colleagues.
And
I
think
that’s
an
important
message
because
Russia
has
tried
to
say
No,
there
are
different
views,'” Støre
told
The
Associated
Press
on
Thursday,
following
the
morning’s

“And
of

opinions
in
different
ways.
But
in
this
there
has
been
consistency.
The
war
has
to
stop.”

As
a
NATO
member
whose
border
with
Russia
stretches
well
over
100
miles
(just
under
200
kilometers),
Norway’s
geographical
and
geopolitical
location
has
proved
relevant
in
the
context
of
the
crisis.
It’s
also
an
elected
member
of
the
Security
Council.
Støre
had
a
blunt
assessment
of
the
way
Russian
President
Vladimir
Putin
has
tried
