Washington, United States, June 24: India has been accepted to the G7 because the agenda is deep and diverse, and it is not about trying to split them apart from Russia, but it is not about trying to dissociate them from any other association or partnership they may have with another country, according to US National Security Council coordinator John Kirby.This isn't the end goal here.Kirby said the aim is to unite around a series of common goals and initiatives, adding that the g7 needs to accelerate in terms of climate change, energy, and food security.The NSC coordinator made these remarks at a press conference on Friday, responding to a query about the motivation behind inviting developing nations like India, Indonesia, and South Africa to the G7 summit.

And there are also economic and other ways that a partnership can be both effective and risk-taking.I think you should let Indian officials talk about their economic policies, he had said.What I can say is that we value this bilateral relationship with India and that we continue to believe that each country should take those decisions for themselves.These are sovereign decisions, but he said that we want to put as much pressure on Russia as possible internationally.Despite international sanctions on Moscow, India has increased energy imports from Russian in recent weeks.

There have been developed institutionalized mechanisms for the strengthening of economic cooperation between the two countries.However, the Ukrainian conflict and subsequent sanctions imposed by Western countries have sparked trade barriers.Earlier this month, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar reacted to the inflammatory criticism of Indian oil purchases from Russia, which has had a knock-on effect on the global economy.Jaishankar responded to a question about whether India's oil import from Russia isn't funding the ongoing Ukraine war, saying, Look, I dont want to sound argumentative.

Its only Indian money and Russian oil arriving to India funding the conflict, not Russias gas coming to Europe not funding, according to Jaishankar, who spoke at the GLOBSEC 2022 Bratislava Forum in Slovakia.If we have to deal with it in a way that the effect on the economy is not traumatizing, that freedom should extend to other populations, he said.
