India’s decision to shut down oil imports from Iran is hurting India-Iran bilateral trade and India’s future in Chabahar port.
The Ambassador has said that India had ‘fought hard for its independence’ and should not have given in to ‘unilateral sanctions’ from the U.S.
Mr. Chegeni has said that it is now official that India has stopped importing oil from Iran because of what it says is its own national interest.
He added that if there are no oil payments due from India, how we can buy from India? This is India’s sovereign decision, but others have chosen differently.
He also added that in view of the delay over India’s plans to build a railway line connecting Chabahar port to the Afghan border at Zahedan, the Iranian government took the decision to complete the railroad through its own resources by 2021.Share this to your,
