America had ‘threatened’ India
Let us let you know that earlier the US had warned that countries that created a stalemate in US sanctions against Russia would have to face the consequences. US Deputy National Security Advisor Dalip Singh had said that his country would not like to see a “sharp” increase in India’s imports of energy and other things from Russia. Dalip Singh did not stop at this, but he also said that India should not expect that Russia will run to protect India if China violates the LAC.
