Newsline: India sees red after US consulate tells Mumbai port to ban Russian ships

A massive controversy has erupted over US bid to stop India from continuing trade with Russia amid its invasion of Ukraine. (https://www.hindustantimes.com/videos/world-news/india-sees-red-after-us-consulate-tells-mumbai-port-to-ban-russian-ships-101657868498549.html) The MEA has now responded to US consulate’s move, where it asked Mumbai Port Authority to ban Russian ships over American sanctions last month. The MEA said that it has asked US consulate to communicate via them and not directly. Reports also suggest that India has made it clear that it is its sovereign decision to engage with countries in national interest and that it won’t deny ships from any countries.
