After US allows waiver for India on Iran oil, Dharmendra Pradhan hails PM Modi
India and other leading oil buyers will benefit from the waiver the United States has granted them from Iran sanctions, the oil minister Dharmendra Pradhan said on Saturday.
India and other leading oil buyers will benefit from the waiver the United States has granted them from Iran sanctions, the oil minister Dharmendra Pradhan said on Saturday. The United States said on Friday it will temporarily allow eight importers to keep buying Iranian oil when it re-imposes sanctions on Monday to try to force Iran to curb its nuclear, missile and regional activities. It did not name the countries which would benefit.
India`s Oil Minister Pradhan said it won the waiver largely due to a forceful campaign by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. India had been vocal at international forums about rising oil prices and its impact on the economy. "In the current geopolitically challenging scenario, India has managed to convince international leaders," Pradhan told reporters in New Delhi.
Having abandoned the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, U.S. President Donald Trump is trying to cripple Iran`s oil-dependent economy and force Tehran to quash not only its nuclear ambitions and its ballistic missile programme but its support for militant proxies in Syria, Yemen, Lebanon and other parts of the Middle East.
