Discover the jaw-dropping secret of billions hidden in Indian banks by Russia! Explore the intriguing details revealed by Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at the G20 Summit in New Delhi. Don’t miss this eye-opening revelation!
In a press briefing following the G20 Summit in New Delhi, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov disclosed that Russia has a substantial amount of rupees held in Indian bank accounts, which, as of now, cannot be utilized. He mentioned that the Indian government had assured Russia of identifying promising investment opportunities for these funds. Lavrov also reaffirmed the continuation of various agreements, including those related to military and technical cooperation between the two nations.
He characterized the New Delhi summit as a significant milestone and praised India’s leadership in consolidating the G20 members, particularly BRICS countries (Brazil, India, China, and South Africa), whose united stance defended the interests of developing nations and prevented the Western powers from monopolizing the agenda with the Ukraine crisis.
Lavrov clarified that the New Delhi Leaders’ Declaration while containing references to the Ukrainian crisis, was not solely focused on Ukraine but emphasized the necessity of resolving all global conflicts in accordance with the principles outlined in the United Nations (UN) Charter.
Regarding Ukraine, Lavrov criticized the West for failing to engage in substantive discussions and instead demanded that Russia cease its aggression and restore Ukraine’s territorial integrity. He highlighted the UN Charter’s principles of equality and self-determination of people and suggested that the Ukrainian government’s attempts to suppress the Russian language and culture had alienated residents of Crimea and Donbas, leading to their desire for autonomy.
Lavrov also addressed the possibility of reviving the Black Sea Grain Initiative (BSGI) but stressed that it should benefit both Ukraine and Russia by facilitating the export of grains and fertilizers from both countries. He expressed scepticism about UN Secretary-General António Guterres’ efforts to restart the BSGI, suggesting that Guterres might be promoting unilateral approaches.
On the topic of a Russia-Ukraine ceasefire, Lavrov expressed Russia’s willingness to engage in negotiations but insisted that any such talks must consider the longstanding reasons behind the conflict, including NATO’s expansion near Russia’s borders. He mentioned previous agreements to settle the conflict and suggested that external influences had hindered their implementation.
Lavrov concluded by pointing out that some Ukrainian officials had adopted a hostile stance towards Russians, and he questioned why certain actions and decrees by the Ukrainian government were not receiving more attention in international discussions.
