Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar has responded to the statement of the head of the European Union.
relations between India and Russia european union With what vision does he see, an example of this was seen in the recent past. Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar Sweden, Belgium and Bangladesh are on a trip to. During a press conference in Brussels, S Jaishankar responded to the European Union official’s statement that he would take action against the Indian.
European Union’s head of foreign policy Joseph Borrell said, India’s refinery is taking crude oil from Russia, processing it and selling it to Europe. For this action should be taken against them. Foreign Minister S Jaishankar responded by citing the 833/2014 EU rule and stopped speaking of the European Union.
What does the 833/2014 EU Rules say?
Regulation (EU) No. 833/2014 prohibits the import of crude oil from Russia, whether by pipeline or by sea. The rule also says that if something is originated in Russia or something is being exported by Russia, then there is a direct ban on that.
But it has also been said in this rule that if there is a food and energy crisis in a country, then it can be done in a third country to avoid it and prevent its negative effects. In this way, India is exporting directly to other and European countries only after processing the crude oil coming from Russia. S Jaishankar said the same thing in his reply after Joseph Borrell’s statement.
Where did the objection to the European Union come from, now let’s understand that too. Actually, after the attack in Ukraine, the European Union has imposed many types of sanctions on Russia. India is buying crude oil from Russia. India has already made it clear that it will not impose any kind of sanctions on Russia. The European Union is furious about this.
Where is the screw stuck?
Joseph Borrell’s statement came two days ago. In the statement, he had said that India buys oil from Russia and refines the same oil and sells it to European countries. This is a violation of the sanctions imposed by the European Union on Russia. The purpose of this ban is to weaken Russia’s economy. Decrease Russian revenue. That’s why we need to act on India.
India has cleared its stand on Russia on several occasions and is refining the oil it gets from Russia and selling it to European countries. In this way his rule is also being followed. The rule of EU has now become a big problem for it, to which Foreign Minister Jaishankar has given the answer.
