South African Envoy to Russia Blasts Germany's 'Double Standards' Amid Calls to Resume Coal Mining
“The Germans are quite aggressively pursuing their policy in the search for new markets. They came to South Africa to discuss energy transition issues. At the same time, they themselves increased coal imports from South Africa on a huge scale. The contradiction lies in the fact that South Africa has practically suspended the production and use of coal for its own needs, and now sells it to Germany,” the ambassador said.
