India: We follow UN sanctions, not unilateral US curbs on Iran

New Delhi

India only abides by sanctions imposed by the United Nations and not those imposed by any other country, such as ones announced by the United States against Iran, India’s foreign minister said on Monday.
US President Donald Trump this month withdrew the United States from the Iran nuclear deal and ordered the reimposition of US sanctions against Iran that were suspended under the 2015 accord.
But Indian foreign minister Sushma Swaraj said New Delhi’s position was independent of any other country.
“India follows only UN sanctions, and not unilateral sanctions by any country,” she said at a news conference in response at a question on India’s response to the US decision.—Agencies
