The International Energy Agency called China a threat to the European gas market

The International Energy Agency, which, by the very format of its existence, is called upon to consolidate efforts for the development of world energy, has switched to a mode of work that is characteristic exclusively of the West. The IEA suddenly began to look for "threats". At the same time, against the background of the traditional accusations of the West against Russia, a new accusation has appeared.

Now IEA analysts have released a report arguing that the threat to European security in the gas sector is the People's Republic of China.



From the report:

China in 2023 will increase gas imports by at least a third, which could significantly exceed even the record volumes of purchases in 2021. This will lead to increased competition and a new jump in gas prices.

The International Energy Agency, which can be safely renamed a Western agency, said that it is China in the coming months that could violate the “new principle of providing affordable gas” being built by Europe. Apparently, the IEA understands “available” gas as liquefied gas sold by the US to Europe at least a third more expensive than Russian gas.

The IEA report effectively refutes claims made by European analysts that Russia "lost the gas war with Europe because it worked out a scheme to provide energy resources without having to buy them from Russia." Firstly, it does not take into account that Russian resources continue to go to Europe under the guise of hydrocarbons from other countries (from China, for example) with a hefty markup. Secondly, if we follow the logic of the IEA, then Chinese demand for gas can hit "Europe that won the gas war with Russia" as painfully as possible.

      If we discuss everything that the Western and Anglo-Saxon media, as well as the "international" organizations controlled by the Anglo-Saxons, write and publish in relation to Russia, China, Iran and other countries of the world that are recalcitrant to them, then no life will be enough to catch them in a lie.

      It's time to seriously cooperate with all the countries of the world, which the "Anglo-Saxon world" has already got to the very liver and build their own world and their communication systems, and not try to please the Anglo-Saxons and their puppets.

      Why are they looking for threats everywhere, why don't they know how to live peacefully?

        Yes, because the Anglo-Saxons have been doing this for centuries, then they were threatened by the Indians of North America, then India and southern Africa. And now Afghanistan and Iraq with Syria, let's skip about Vietnam (they have already forgotten). Well, it’s not clear where Yugoslavia was, and even more so Russia, which lived peacefully with Europe, has been feeding it on its own head with the world’s cheapest gas and oil products since 1945. Although Europe loved Russian bread with vegetable oil. Snickering Europe and the United States understood this before she did. It's time to live within our means and not to forget the Banner of Victory over the Reichstag.

          Yugoslavia was beaten not for profit, but indicatively, to establish complete power over Europe!!! With subsequent profit of course smile The power for this is formed. The result of the murder of Yugoslavia is a complete protectorate over Europe!

        They are looking for threats where they are not, and where they are, they are not looking, because the main threat is their most important boss with dementia

      Don't look to the west. Enough to do and worry. How many regions do we have without mains gas? How many gas processing plants still need to be built? You can probably get a lot of things out of gas, not only burn it in boiler houses and sell it abroad? Maybe I'm a layman in this matter, but it seems to me that for many years to come we have gas to attach in our country! Correct me if I don't understand something.

      only now a lot of the "elite" literally prays for Western values. and it’s easier for them to ruin the whole country than to admit the fallacy of their "values"

      It is very easy for China to buy Russian gas at a low price. There is no Nord Stream, Ukraine has its own. The infrastructure for gas delivery in Europe has been destroyed. China has only profit, for the EU, Russia and Ukraine there are only losses. There are big doubts that Chinese friends rule in the Kremlin.

      China in the coming months may violate the “new principle of providing affordable gas” being built by Europe

      That is, the fact that China will violate what they have been building for a whole year is scary, bad and criminal. And the fact that they themselves destroyed in a couple of months what Russia had been building for SIXTY YEARS is normal. It is legal. And yes... it's different!
