India ends Iranian oil imports

WASHINGTON: India has ended all imports of oil from Iran, its ambassador in Washington said Wednesday, becoming the latest country to 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 reporters 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’s concerns about Tehran.

“This is an issue that has to be dealt with, really, between the United States and Iran. We are only, in many senses, looking at it as a third party,” Shringla said.

But he added: “We would not like to see a move toward any escalation in any way in that area, for the simple reason that we depend very heavily on stability in that part of the world.”

Trump last year pulled out of a multinational pact under which Iran drastically scaled back its nuclear work in return for promises of sanctions relief.

The Trump administration has instead ramped up economic pressure on Iran and recently deployed military assets including an aircraft carrier strike group to the area.

The United States as of May 2 has ended exemptions it had given to eight governments from its unilateral order to stop buying Iranian oil.

Turkey, which enjoyed a waiver and vocally disagreed with the US policy, has also stopped importing oil from Iran, a Turkish official said Tuesday.

State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus welcomed the news from Turkey.

“We want the whole world to comply with these sanctions, and we’re grateful for our partners and allies that are respecting them,” she told reporters.

Since the emergence of Petro Dollar, US not UN or any other body governs the global financial trade and you have to be part of the US banking system to clear your global transactions. US alone (without the permission of anyone) can isolate you from the system if it chooses to! All the countries in the world Chose to be part of US financial system! Probably they never thought how badly it can play back if an Idiot would ever get elected in the US.

Russia and China have recently erected a parallel system. Hence, they are not limited to US's banking channels and USD to clear their trade. And hence, they can continue dealing with Iran as US can't sanction them entirely!

Why countries have to comply with US sanctions against Iran, unless these sanctions were mandated by UN Security Council.

پاکستان کی پاس سنہری موقعہ ہے


ایک مسلمان ملک کی مدد کرنی چاہیں بےشک لاکھ اختلاف ہوں


ایران کی مدد کرو، اور جو بھٹو شیعہ کے خلاف پاکستان میں اپنی غرداری سے نفرت پھیلانے میں نمبر ۔۱ ہے

اُس کے خلاف پاکستانی شیعہ کو جو شہ ایران سے ملتی ہے اُس کو بہتر طریقہ سے روکا جا سکتا ہے۔

اس طرح یہ بھٹو کے کتے صحابہ کو گالیاں نکالنے اور پی.ٹی.ایم کو ہوا دینے سے بھی رکوے جا سکتے ہیں۔

Because except Pakistan which still feel for Iran and want to help them. Even after Bhutto PPP the bastard party who shamelessly uses Shias and privileges them in positions of power in a Shia Minority country abusing common Muslims.

Iran has played political role in each of the Muslims countries supporting traitor/extremist political and terrorist parties. It's hard to gain any sympathy for Iran after that.

Iran better realize what is good for them.
I remember Iran loudly supported India during Pulwama blaming Pakistan.

But I still think we should help them with food and what they need. It's their way to abuse us using PPP Shia party but we should help them as an Islamic country, as a Neighbour when no one stands with them. We should show brotherhood.

پی پی پی کو یہ سب یاد نہیں جب وہ صحابہ کو گالیاں نکلاتے ہیں معاویہ کا نظام چاہیے

اس پی پی پی سے کافروں سے صلاح بہتر ہے

آدھی صدی سے جو شیعہ کو پاکستان کے خلاف استمال کرتے آئے ہیں وہ کیا سچ نہیں

پی ٹی ایم کے جلسوں میں پی پی پی کے لوگ جا کر جو فوج کو گالیاں نکال رہے ہیں وہ کونسا اسلام اور مسلمان کا فرض ہے۔

Becuz US is the ruling state in the world, there is no such thing as independence 🤪
No it's not any longer it's the last fight they are fighting. One clear evidence is the US has to fight it's own wars. It's economy is financial much like what Britain was left after WW1. Eventually America replaced it, similarly China has mostly replaced USA w.r.t Purchasing Power Parity the only metric that matters.

Not Really! CSAs are only good for bilateral trade agreements. For commodities, which constitute the bulk of international trade, you still need to trade through international clearing markets!

It looks like Iran is doomed unless some miracle happens.
Very very difficult times ahead for Iran.
Not so sure about that.
Financially, Iran has always been in a tough spot. Now with sanctions, they will just resume what they used to do before. Part of their exports will be in the form of re-exporting, and part of it will be in the grey market. Though they wont get that much money for their oil anymore, they will survive.
US govt, apart from Trump, doesnt agree with the sanctions, nor a war with Iran. Congress will never give approval for it. Trump seems to be overplaying his hands a lot lately. It will only take one country to start the ball rolling.

And the US is the best ally one can have! Pakistan knows it from history! 😁 😁

India's foreign policy is so fucked up that it'll sink them very soon. It has always been in bed with Russia but now wants to be in bed with the US too. It had always maintained good relations with Israel, but at the same is trying to get cozy with Iran and Saudia too. It wants to be in bed with you and with your enemies simultaneously!!

I just hope this helps frustrate Russia fast and Russia chooses to align with Pakistan instead!

جی بلکل جو عمارتیں آپکو نظر آتی ہیں وہ ملٹا نیشنل کمپنیوں کی ہیں۔

ہندوستان کے بہترین ذہن ہر روز امریکہ کے لیے کام کر رہے ہیں اس لیے اگلے دس سال بھی وہ اپنے مسائل پر توجہ نہیں دے سکتے۔

جب ان کے اپنے لوگ اپنے مسائل پر توجہ نہیں دیں گے نہ حل کریں گے تو کسی قسم کی ترقی محض دیکھاؤا ہے۔
