INDIA: Jaishankar:  "I'm Very Bullish About The US-India Relationship"


Indian External Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar has spoken widely on issues related to the US-India bilateral relationship in a joint presser with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

  • On the Russian oil price cap, "we had a brief discussion on it this morning. More technical people are engaged between the two systems on this particular issue. It is of course a G7 initiative..."
  • "Countries in the global south have found it difficult to compete for limited energy. Not just in terms of pricing but often in terms of availability. We will judge any situation, frankly, by how it affects us and the global south."
  • On military equipment from Russia, Jaishankar says: "To the best of my knowledge I don't think we have had any particular problems in terms of servicing or supply of spare parts from Russia. Where we get our military equipment [has not] particularly changed do to geopolitical tensions. In the past 15 years we have procured a lot from the US."
  • Jaishankar says he sees today's US as more engaging and "open to engaging a country like India," he says that the "Quad" is a good example of this changing US outlook which has "opened up a range of possibilities."
