The US is furious, as India is maintaining its friendship with Russia too. Needless to say, the US is trying to intimidate India by making such statements.
Washington (USA) – US Deputy National Security Advisor Daleep Singh said that the friendship between Russia and China is very strong referring to the no-limits partnership between both. He warned India not to expect that Russia will be on its side if China breaches the Line of Actual Control. Daleep Singh made this statement ahead of his visit to India. Daleep Singh stated that India must take note of the China-Russia friendship after he met with Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla earlier.
In response to a question about India`s recent decision to take up Russia’s offer of discounted crude oil, Daleep Singh said “What we would not like to see is a rapid acceleration of India’s imports from Russia as it relates to energy or any other any other exports that are currently being prohibited by the US or by other aspects of the international sanctions regime.”
