You will remember that the discussion of Russia-Ukraine war was going on. The countries associated with the European Union (EU) were trying to put unnecessary pressure on India. The pressure was on why India is buying crude oil from Russia? The main reason behind importing oil from Russia is that we can get it at low prices from there. crude oil gets from which in the country petrol-diesel The prices remain low. Every country serves its own interest and when India serves its own interest then what is the problem? Then in a to the point talking style of India External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar Washed the European countries in such a way that they had stopped speaking.
Once again Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar said that since February 2022, Europe has imported six times more fossil fuels from Russia than India. He said that if a society with a per capita income of $ 60,000 has its own concerns, then they should not expect to be beaten by a society with a per capita income of $ 2,000. Being so vocal, hardly any country has told the European countries. However, S Jaishankar always has the same effect.
The world is still based on western countries- Jaishankar
In a report published in the New York Times, Jaishankar was quoted as saying that the world, which is still almost entirely based on Western countries, is changing with the impact of the Ukraine war and it is turning into a multi-aligned world where Countries will be able to choose their policies and preferences and interests. According to the news, Jaishankar said, I would like to see a more rule-based world. But when people start pressuring you to give up something based on the rules based world, when they start pressuring you to compromise on matters of very serious interest, then I am afraid it is necessary to respond and if need be Even challenging him.
Jaishankar washed away with these facts
The External Affairs Minister also said that since February (2022), Europe has imported six times more fossil fuels from Russia than India, and if a society with a per capita income of US $ 60,000 is concerned, then they will have to import US $ 2,000. A society with a dollar per capita income should not be expected to suffer.
Only he will decide India’s energy needs – Jaishankar
Russia attacked Ukraine, it has changed the global conditions. Whole Europe has been buying oil and gas from Russia only. After the war, many restrictions were imposed on Russia. Due to this there was a power crisis in Europe. European countries put pressure on India not to buy oil from Russia. Then S. Jaishankar kept such a fact that foreign countries kept staring. Earlier, he has made it clear that only he will decide India’s energy needs. This priority cannot be decided by Europe or any other foreign country. The Foreign Minister has bluntly said that Europe itself should do something and ask India to say something else, how is this possible. Europe has imported more oil, gas and coal from Russia than 10 countries put together.
