The reference was used by the German chancellor during the Munich Security Conference on Friday.

German Chancellor Olf Scholz referred to External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar's viral "European mindset" remarks during the Munich Security Conference. Jaishankar had angrily responded to a question on India's stand on the Russia-Ukraine war during the 17th edition of the GLOBSEC Bratislava Forum in Slovakia last year. Jaishankar had said that 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 reference was used during Olf Scholz suggested a change in the so-called 'European mindset' and said Jaishankar's comments about this had merit. Scholz said that this quote from the Indian Foreign Minister is included in this year's Munich Security Report and he has a fact that it will not be only Europe's problem if strong law establishes itself in international relations.

To be European or North American is not enough to emphasize shared values. He said that we generally have to address the interests and concerns of these countries as a basic condition for joint action and that is why it was so important to me that the talks during the G7 summit last June Representatives from Asia, Africa and Latin America were not the only ones at the table.

So that solutions can be found to the main challenges due to which they are facing increasing poverty and hunger. These challenges have emerged partly as a result of the Russia-Ukraine war, as well as the impact of climate change and COVID-19. Last year during the GLOBSEC Bratislava forum, Jaishankar was asked why he thinks anyone will help New Delhi when it has problems with China after not helping others for Ukraine.

It has to come out that the problems of Europe are the problems of the world but the problems of the world are not the problems of Europe. They said if it's you, it's yours, if it's me, it's ours. I see its reflection.
