Peskov criticizes Tokyo’s position in the Energy Dialogue and comments on Norway’s restrictions on supplies to Svalbard

Press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov said that Japan maintains an extremely unfriendly attitude towards Russia, which does not contribute to the development of cooperation and energy dialogue between the two sides.

In response to a question about whether there will be consequences for the Japanese shareholders of the Sakhalin-2 LNG project, Peskov added: “I can’t answer right now.”

Peskov continued: “This is just a declared initiative, and no unified decisions have been made on this issue. To be honest, it is doubtful that such decisions can be made. These are different sides of one big problem.”

Earlier, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said that the price ceiling for Russian oil could be set at half of its current value, and it was also planned to create a mechanism that would prevent the purchase of oil from Russia at a cost higher than the stipulated limit. .

Last Monday, Peskov commented on this statement, saying that such a single statement does not mean that countries can agree to such standards.

In his speech, Peskov also touched upon Norwegian restrictions on supplies to Svalbard, calling the situation difficult and noting that the Kremlin hopes to resolve these problems through dialogue.

Peskov pointed out that there is still no official Russian position on terminating the agreement with Norway on the delimitation of maritime areas.
