No one has stopped India to buy Petrol from Russia: Hardeep Puri


New Delhi: The Indian government will continue to buy oil from wherever it has to and has a moral duty to provide energy to its citizens, Union Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas Hardeep Singh Puri said to Indian reporters in Washington DC, asserting that no country has told India to stop buying oil from Russia.

“India will buy oil from wherever it has to for the simple reason that this kind of discussion cannot be taken to the consuming population of India,” Puri told a group of Indian reporters in Washington DC, where he held meetings with officials from Joe Biden administration.

The Russia-Ukraine war has had a far-reaching impact on the global energy system, disrupting supply and demand patterns and fracturing long-standing trading relationships.

“If you are clear about your policy, which means you believe in energy security and energy affordability, you will buy from wherever you have to purchase energy from sources,” Puri said after his bilateral meeting with US Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm.
