India has ended Iranian oil imports
2019-05-24
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] India has ended all imports of oil from Iran, its ambassador in Washington said on Wednesday, becoming the latest country to grudgingly comply with threatened US sanctions.

India had already sharply decreased its imports from Iran and bought one million tons of crude in April, the last month before Washington stepped up its pressure campaign against Tehran and ended all exemptions to sanctions, Ambassador Harsh Vardhan Shringla said.

"That’s it. After that we haven’t imported any," Shringla told news hounds during a briefing on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s election victory.

Shringla said that energy-hungry India has also ended all imports from Venezuela because it considered itself a partner of the United States -- but said the shift had caused pain at home, with Iran formerly supplying 10 percent of India’s oil needs.

Calling Iran "an extended neighbor" of India with longstanding cultural links, Shringla declined to say if New Delhi shared President Donald Trump
