Lavrov reacted to Pompeo's charges to Rosneft — Rambler News Service


Photo: globallookpress.com the Foreign Minister of Russia Sergey Lavrov commented on statements of the U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who accused Rosneft of purchase of oil from Venezuela in circumvention of the American sanctions. The minister reminded that earlier the speaker of National assembly of Venezuela Huang Guaido who declared himself the interim president of the country said that Caracas has to stop selling oil to Cuba. "This as is combined with international law? Yes in any way. And in principle it is necessary to compete honestly because we see the worst violation of all ethical and precepts of law when the United States demand, as a matter of fact, from any country of the world not to buy from Russia raw materials, energy resources, and to buy them in the USA; not to buy from Russia of products within military and technical cooperation, and to buy more expensive products from the United States" — Lavrov said during the joint press conference with the Foreign Minister of Austria Karina Knaysl. The minister noted that such manner of the USA — to dictate to all everyone and everything — will not bring to good. Before March 12 the U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said that Rosneft buys oil from the Venezuelan company PDVSA, despite sanctions of the USA against Venezuela. According to him, thereby Rosneft "stretches a lifebuoy" to the authorities of Venezuela. In turn, Rosneft stated that it considers Pompeo's statements groundless charges. The company also noted that it carries out exclusively commercial activity for the benefit of all the shareholders, without politicizing.
