Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan | Reuters file
Islamabad – Former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has once again praised India for its independent foreign policy as he slammed the West for criticizing India for buying Russian oil.
Addressing a huge rally in Lahore, Imran Khan played a video clip of Foreign Minister S Jaishankar from the Bratislava Forum held in Slovakia and praised him for his firmness in the face of US pressure on oil purchase cheap to Russia.
If India, which got its independence at the same time as Pakistan, and if New Delhi can take a firm stand and make its foreign policy according to the needs of its people, then who are they (the government of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif) who are pulling the line, Imran Khan said at the rally, a video of which was shared by multiple outlets.
They (the United States) ordered India not to buy oil from Russia. India is America’s strategic ally, not Pakistan. Let’s see what the Indian foreign minister said when the United States asked them not to buy Russian oil.
Imran Khan then released the video clip of External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar.
Jaishankar tells them who are you? Jaishakar said Europe buys gas from Russia and we will buy it as people need it. That’s what an independent country is (“yeh hoti hai azad haqumat”), he said, praising India.
He also criticized the Shehbaz Sharif government for caving in to US pressure to buy Russian oil.
We had talked to Russia about buying cheaper oil, but this government does not have the courage to say no to American pressure. Fuel prices are skyrocketing, people are below the poverty line. I am against this slavery.
Jaishankar’s clip aired during Lahore Jalsa was from June 3, when in response to a question about India buying Russian oil, he cross-examined: Isn’t buying Russian gas funding war ?
Jaishankar made the remarks during the Bratislava 2022 GLOBSEC Forum being held in Slovakia under the theme “Taking Friendship to the Next Level: Allies in the Indo-Pacific Region”.
He had hit back at unfair criticism of India’s oil purchase from Russia amid the war in Ukraine, which created a ripple effect on the global economy.
While defending India’s oil imports from Russia, Jaishankar stressed the importance of understanding the impact of the Ukraine conflict on developing countries. He also questioned why only India was being questioned as Europe continues to import gas from Russia amid the war in Ukraine.
Responding to a question on whether India’s oil imports from Russia are funding the ongoing war in Ukraine, Jaishankar said: Listen, I don’t want to sound argumentative. If India financing Russian oil is financing the war, then tell me buying Russian gas does not finance the war? Is it only Indian money and Russian oil coming to India that is financing the war and not Russian gas coming to Europe which is not financing? Let’s be a bit impartial.
