US Not Thinking Of Imposing Ban On Oil Imports From Russia: US Secretary Jen Psaki

According to reports from the United States of America as ANI has shared that till now no decision has still been taken by the Biden administration for the ban in importing oil from Russia.

As per reports amid concerns about rising energy prices over the Russia-Ukraine situation, the United States has said no decision has been made by the Biden administration about a ban on importing oil from Russia.

The United States and other western countries have imposed a series of sanctions on Russia after Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the "special military operation" last month.

However, Russian energy imports have so far been left out of punitive measures due to concerns over how the energy gap would impact the energy supplies.

As per reports no decision has been made at this point by the president about a ban on importing oil from Russia.

As per sources those discussions are ongoing internally and also with our counterparts and partners in Europe and around the world White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said during a press briefing.

She said that US President Joe Biden is focused on ensuring economic consequences on Putin while taking action necessary to limit the impact on prices.

White House Jen Psaki has further stated that as you noted, yes, it is true that there has obviously been an impact of the invasion on the level of import to the United States into other parts of the world.

Psaki said the US over the next year will produce more oil than ever before.

She has further stated that the US produced more oil this past year than in President Trump's first year. 

Jen Psaki has further stated that next year according to the Department of Energy, we will produce more oil than ever before. 

Earlier the White House had said to immediately sanction a ban on Russian energy.

As per sources the ANI has reported that on Sunday, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that the US was looking at a potential ban in a coordinated way with European allies.
