China’s conflict with America is not hidden from anyone. If China supported Russia in the Russia-Ukraine war, the US did not make any possible effort to surround it. Now three have retaliated and asked America that when India is buying oil from Russia, why is it sitting silent?
China’s official newspaper Global Times says that America is adopting a dual attitude towards India and China. The US has said on India’s oil purchase from Russia that it is India’s sovereign decision, on which the Chinese media is furious. He says that when China buys oil from Russia, America asks China to play the role of a responsible country and impose sanctions on Russia. But in the case of India, what does America want to show by turning back from its own point of view?
John Kirby, the coordinator of the White House Security Council’s Strategic Communications Council, said on Tuesday in the context of Russia that each country should make its own decision. He was questioned about India’s increasing oil purchases from Russia. He said that India is a very important strategic partner of America in the Indo-Pacific region. There are many ways in which the defense, security and economic partnership between the two countries is reflected. He will not stop Indian leaders from deciding their economic policies.
The Global Times, which is called the mouthpiece of the Chinese government, has targeted this remark from the US through a graphic. Sharing the graphic on its Twitter handle, Global Times wrote that the classic double standard from the White House.

Keep in mind that despite US sanctions, China and India are at the forefront of buying oil from Russia. According to reports, Russia has become the second largest oil supplier to India in the month of May. Saudi Arabia is at number one in this matter. India buys the largest amount of oil from this Gulf country.
