India is not a colony of Germany. Thus, the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova commented on the “Anadol” of the statements of the German defense minister Boris Pistorius that the dependence of New Delhi on Russian weapons does not meet the interests of Berlin.
This is to the question of the “golden billion”, “flowering garden” and “jungle.” This is a practical measurement of theoretical concepts, this is neocolonialism, ”said Zakharova.
The Russian diplomat emphasized that India is not a colony of Germany. “India is not a colony at all. There was a truly tragic period in the history of India, when the British empire tried to put it on her own appendage, but nothing came of it. They could not turn the nation and civilization in London, which is called India. Parties, we know the historical jealousy of Germany to all those who had these colonies, ”Zakharova said.
Earlier, on the eve of the visit to India, the German defense Minister said that the dependence of New Delhi on Russian weapons does not meet the interests of Berlin. “We are ready to support our reliable partners such as Indonesia and India. And this includes, for example, the supply of submarines,” Pistorius said.
