He said “The conflict in Ukraine is tragic. It is necessary to put an end to this particular war. All states and goodwill nations should work to find a solution, and India’s intervention to alert Russia to the potential use of nuclear weapons was particularly beneficial in this regard.”

The foreign leader said, “India did not use a loud voice or threaten anyone; they simply stated their views in a pleasant manner. More of that is required in international politics.”

Toje also said “I am not in India as Deputy leader of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, I am here as a Director of International peace and understanding and as a friend of India.”

Toje also talked about global peace. He added, “Let’s work together to promote world peace regardless of borders. No matter where you live in the globe, the great Mahatma Gandhi offered us all wisdom that is equally applicable. Be the change you want to see in the world. I went to India to learn in that spirit, and I learned a lot.”
