A wide reaction was caused by the video recordings of a side conversation between the presidents of France and the United States, published by the media.
And a video clip appeared in the media showing the moment when French President Emmanuel Macron interrupted the conversation between US President Joe Biden and his adviser Jake Sullivan to inform him (Macron) about his call with the President of the Emirates.
According to the news, which was described as unpleasant, Macron took Biden to Biden to tell him about the problem of increasing oil production:
He said: “I just received a call from the Emirates, Mohammed bin Zayed, and told me that the UAE is at the maximum level of production, while Saudi Arabia can increase production by 150,000 barrels per day and maybe a little more.”
Macron then continued by telling Biden, “And one more thing I want to say about what we will do with Russian oil,” so that Biden’s adviser and his entourage will immediately boycott him and remove him from Macron.
Western reactions on the social network “Twitter” about this have diverged, some of them said that this is another evidence that they did not think before starting a war in Ukraine, and some described the complete loss and complete confusion of the two presidents and the confusion of the West, and others said that if Biden did not act and liberalize and increase energy production in his country or start looking for other sources of oil, then this would undermine America’s position as a world leader.
Some pointed out that the West became aware of the scale of the energy crisis, and as soon as they started talking about Russian oil, the call was interrupted by Biden’s adviser and his associates: “It seems that Macron has finally realized that there is no supermarket with millions of barrels of oil on the shelves, waiting to be bought.”
There is so much going on here.
1. Macron and Biden know nothing about hot mics
2. Other countries cannot help them compensate for the Russian oil they have sanctioned.
3. Another proof that they did not think before provoking a war in Ukraine pic.twitter.com/InbyhD90nT

⚡️🇺🇸: lol, just watched this video where Macron stopped Biden in the garden at the G7 to inform him that the UAE and Saudi Arabia will not increase oil production 😅 They both look absolutely lost.

Biden’s refusal to expand U.S. oil and gas production in the midst of the worst energy crisis in 50 years was insane *until* Macron was exposed.
Now, if Biden does not act, he will effectively relinquish America’s status as the leader of the free world. https://t.co/wkT9G2ABo5

Macron seems to have finally realized that there is no supermarket with millions of barrels of oil just sitting on the shelves waiting to be bought. Caught talking to Biden yesterday at the G7.
This was evident even before the start of the war in Ukraine.

No, this looks like a direct call to Biden to stop banishing Russian oil!
But as soon as Macron starts talking about this simple solution, the conversation ends abruptly. https://t.co/4mxsKswYb8

There was also a backlash in Arab circles as some felt that the clips showed the extent of the great confusion the West is suffering from regarding the oil crisis, with tweets indicating that the call came days before Biden went to Saudi Arabia. and others said that Biden is in a real crisis.
Others criticized Macron’s behavior when Biden asked about his adviser, “Is this your adviser?”
The West is suffering from great confusion in light of the random decisions to punish Russia and ban its oil. Macron and his European successors are begging for oil from Saudi Arabia and the UAE, and Biden did not seem to understand what Macron told him on the street.
I have never seen the West in such a state of confusion, confusion and begging on the streets of manufacturers 😂 https://t.co/rfZO1gsmVN

What is the purpose of Macron’s promotion to the presidency #France for the president #biden The essence of his conversation with Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed about the limited possibilities for increasing additional oil production for #Saudi Arabia And #UAEPublicly and in the presence of the media, 3 weeks before Biden’s visit to Saudi Arabia and the Gulf Summit?! Doesn’t America know what Macron said to President Biden? pic.twitter.com/VM2PHTSOge

Macron: President Biden interrupts and says:
Mohamed bin Zayed called me and said that they had reached the maximum level of oil production.
And that Saudi Arabia can only increase 150 thousand barrels per day,
For the next six months.
Then he stopped talking.
He is said to have introduced the idea of an alternative to “Iranian and Venezuelan oil”. pic.twitter.com/tl4d1KDldv

President of France #macron Talking to Biden: I spoke to #UAE And I was told that they had reached the highest level of oil production and #Saudi Arabia It has a place to produce, and the last thing I want to say is what we are going to do with Russian oil (and here he is interrupted by a Biden adviser). pic.twitter.com/ScqiGbZvNC

Reports: Biden some time ago refused to increase oil and gas production in the United States in the midst of the worst energy crisis in 50 years.
If Biden does not act, he will relinquish America’s position as the leader of the free world.
Macron wanted journalists to hear his information in order to put pressure on Biden.

Macron: Wait, Joe! Excuse me. Your advisor, right? Address to Jake Sullivan, US National Security Adviser.
Macron: I want to talk about my request to increase oil production. He just spoke to the President of the United Arab Emirates, and he told me two things: first, we are now within our maximum oil production capacity. pic.twitter.com/SRV8xZWdlm

Macron asks the US national security adviser, are you his adviser? Haha, really hardened politician. Secondly, judging by the leaks, after this information, Biden sent a special group to Venezuela to ease sanctions and export oil.
