Then he added that they also take Indian PM Modi’s considerations seriously. He added that while Trump tweets about his views, PM Modi has communicated with them personally. He added, “But we also take the views of Prime Minister Modi who is equally vocal. We just met with him in Buenos Aires and privately he made those points of view very, very strongly that he does care for Indian consumers. I have seen him 3 times in India at various energy events in India where he was also very vocal.”

PM Modi was attending the G20 summit in Buenos Aires recently. As per reports, PM Modi has relentlessly campaigned for low oil prices at an international level. During a brainstorming session of OPEC countries in October, PM Modi had reportedly told the largest producers that they will be killing their ‘golden goose’ if they continue to keep oil prices high.

Modi had met Al Falih along with several other energy ministers and top leaders of oil exporting companies in October. He had pointed out the downsides of high prices as it impacts the economy of nations and asked for better management of prices, including payment method.
