Indonesia: Barriers that prevent Russia from exporting energy resources 'harm global economy' - Finance Minister Siluanov

Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov stated that all the barriers that prevent Moscow from exporting its energy resources to other countries 'harm the global economy', while speaking to media on sidelines of the G20 summit in Bali.

"We were in favour of removing barriers to the export of energy resources, removing all barriers that prevent us from exporting our energy resources to other countries, there are enough barriers today. This harms the global economy," Siluanov said.

He went on to say that the G20 has 'always considered issues in the global economy and its dynamics', while the Russian delegation drew special attention to the economic recession.

In addition, Siluanov touched on the continuation of the grain deal, with many countries in the G20 speaking in favour, amid widespread poverty in a number of African countries.

The minister, citing Russian top diplomat Sergei Lavrov, confirmed that Moscow is in favour of resuming the deal - which was due to expire this Saturday - once the destination points are controlled.

"We are for the grain, supplied under the Black Sea agreements, to go to the countries that need grain supplies. ... Therefore, we spoke in favour of continuing this deal under the control of destination points, so that grain would really go to countries in need," Siluanov added.

The Black Sea deal, agreed in July between the United Nations, Russia, Turkey, and Ukraine, aimed to unblock grain exports from Ukraine's ports, as well as food and fertiliser from Russia.

Moscow previously claimed most of the grain was going to the EU, which Kiev rejected.

Moscow resumed participation in the deal following a short suspension last month, after accusing Ukraine of using the grain corridor to attack Russia's fleet - which Kiev denied. President Vladimir Putin also pledged to supply grain to the 'poorest countries' for free, even if Kremlin decides to withdraw from the deal again.

The G20 summit took place in Indonesia on November 15-16. Top officials from Russia, China, UK, USA, Mexico, Argentina, India, Germany, France, Indonesia, Australia, Turkey, Brazil, South Korea, South Africa, Italy, Canada, Japan, Saudi Arabia and others attended.
