    India concerned over reported shelling near Ukraine nuclear power plant

    August 12, 2022 - BBC Newsfile


      By BBC Monitoring

      India has expressed concern over reports of shelling near the spent fuel storage facility of the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine and urged mutual restraint for the safety and security of nuclear facilities, The Hindu newspaper reported, citing the PTI news agency.

      "We call for mutual restraint so as not to endanger the safety and security of nuclear facilities," the report quoted India's Permanent Representative to the UN, Ambassador Ruchira Kamboj, as saying at a briefing on Ukraine.

      The statement comes in the wake of Europe's largest nuclear power plant Zaporizhzhia being shelled on 5 August, resulting in explosions near the electrical switchboard and a power shutdown.

      India also called upon both sides to return to the path of diplomacy and dialogue, saying, "We support all diplomatic efforts to end the conflict."

      The diplomat also urged the "need also to be acutely cognizant of the impact of the Ukraine conflict on developing countries, particularly, on the supply of foodgrains, fertilisers and fuel".
