Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi told US President Joe Biden that India will offer supply of food stock across the globe if it gets the green signal from the World Trade Organisation (WTO).
Food stock in different parts of the world is dwindling due to the war (in Ukraine), PM Modi said after inaugurating the hostel and education complex of Shree Annapurna Dham Trust in Adalaj in Gujarat via video link, the NDTV reported.
"Today the world is facing an uncertain situation as nobody is getting what they want. Petrol, oil and fertilizers are hard to procure as all the doors are getting closed. Everybody wants to secure their stocks after this (Russia-Ukraine) war began," PM Modi said.
"The world is facing a new problem now; the food stock of the world is getting empty, I was talking to the US President, and he also raised this issue. I suggested that if WTO permits, India is ready to supply food stock to the world from tomorrow," he added.
"We already have enough food for our people but our farmers seem to have made arrangements to feed the world. However, we have to work according to the laws of the world, so I don't know when WTO will give permission and we can supply food to the world," Modi said.
