India’s recent decision to take steps tightening sanctions against Iran is seen in Jerusalem as significant and a sign of an evolving attitude in New Delhi toward Iran.

Teheran on Wednesday refused to sell oil to India because of new rules instituted by New Delhi to prevent Indian business from doing illicit business with Iranian companies. Officials from the central banks of both countries are expected to meet Friday to discuss the new regulations.

Teheran on Wednesday refused to sell oil to India because of new rules instituted by New Delhi to prevent Indian business from doing illicit business with Iranian companies. Officials from the central banks of both countries are expected to meet Friday to discuss the new regulations.

Government officials in Jerusalem said that the Indian moves represented a “positive trend” in that country’s relationship with Iran, one that began before US President Barack Obama went to India in November.

Obama’s visit helped the trend, the officials said.

India, which imports 400,000 barrels of crude oil a day from Iran, took action this week barring companies from dealing with Iran through the Asian Clearing Union (ACU), a financial clearinghouse that includes the central banks of India, Bangladesh, Maldives, Myanmar, Iran, Pakistan, Bhutan, Nepal and Sri Lanka.

This clearinghouse allows central banks to handle payments to their countries’ companies, and – according to a Wall Street Journal report – makes it possible to obscure which firms are doing business.

The US Treasury has regularly raised the issue with India, and discussion on this matter accelerated after Obama’s visit, when he endorsed permanent membership for India on the UN Security Council, the Journal said.

The US has told New Delhi that Indian firms conducting transactions through the ACU run the risk of violating a US law signed in July banning international firms from doing business with 17 Iranian banks and much of Teheran’s oil and gas sector, as well as the Revolutionary Guard, according to the report. If Indian companies are found in violation, they could be banned from doing business in the US, the article said.

While India imports about 14 percent of its crude oil from Iran, down from some 16.5% in 2009, it is believed to provide about 40% of all the refined oil used in Iran. The UN sanctions adopted this summer neither forbade purchasing Iranian oil, nor placed a ban on selling refined oil back to Iran.

Indian-Iranian relations go back centuries, and the US-led effort to get the world on board with sanctions against Iran have not been enthusiastically greeted in India, where there are both huge economic ties as well as common geopolitical interests. For instance, India and Iran have worked together in the past against the Taliban in both Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Iran can enjoy its "friendly" relations with India..don't come running to Pakistan now!
That is correct, however we can't be too sure of our own policy while PPP is there.

They tend to bias towards Iran for a some reason.

Everyone is coming up with their own twisted version just because we can't use ACU, it is very clear that the transcation is not transparent RBI has done a great job. We will find new way to settle things with Iran. Thanks for the concern.

totally agreed .
many countries other than isreal can give us weapons when we pay them. but there are very few suppliers of oil to us.


more importantly, having iran as a friend, india will have more positive influence in Muslims countries.

Lol!

I don't understand why you insist on equating India and Pakistan. What does Pakistan have to offer that would make the Iranians come 'running back'?

Also, we aren't dumb enough to sever our ties with the Iranians but realize that its a two way street (cough cough). We need gas alright, but they need money and our refineries. We might have to make a few compromises, but few nations enjoy the kind of diplomatic relations we do with rival powers.

yeah, that's precisely why all five members of the security council visited India in less than a month, to contract HIV.

seriously man, don't bother replying to my posts if you have nothing intelligent to say, you'll end up embarrassing yourself.
