New Delhi, India: The Principal Deputy Spokesperson of the United States Department of State, Vedant Patel, in an interview, reiterated that every Country would decide on its own as he was questioned about India’s relations with Russia and continuing to import oil from Russia. Elaborating on the same, he also clarified the role of the oil price cap in the energy markets.

According to Patel, “ All price cap does is to ensure a continuous supply of energy into market to meet its demand; while making sure that the profits to Russia remain incapable of funding its war undertakings. “

On being questioned about India’s stance over major international events, including the Ukraine conflict, Vedant Patel responded, “India, in its latest role as G20 President, is moving ahead with ambitious agendas. And In fact, the United States is completely willing to partner with India in the fulfilment of these ambitions. 

Further, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar have been firm over their stance that “this isn’t t the time of war” and a peaceful resolution needs to be made that complies with the United Nations charter.”
