India Doesn’t Support The U.S. Withdrawal From Iran Nuclear Deal


05/31/2018


Behind comments and responses, there seems to be a diplomatic row brewing up between India and the U.S.



The U.S President Donald Trump has decided to make a unilateral withdrawal from the “Iran nuclear deal”. However, the said decision has met with “sharp rebuke” from India, whereby the latter seem to have walked into the “diplomatic row” with the former.
 
 
Before meeting the Foreign Minister of Iran, Javad Zarif, the Minister of External Affairs in India, Sushma Swaraj, addressed a press conference, wherein her remarked was very clear that India will not support the U.S. imposed sanctions. In her words:
“Our foreign policy is not made under pressure from other countries. We recognise UN sanctions and not country-specific sanctions. We didn’t follow US sanctions on previous occasions either.”
 
In fact, the above mentioned statement coming from Swaraj sounds like direct answer to “US National Security Adviser”, John Bolton’s threats, as he had earlier stated countries continuing “to deal with Iran could face sanctions”. The India visit of Zarif, as he has been lately going to several countries in an attempt to “salvage the agreement” by gathering support in spite of the move made by the U.S., along with the comments of Swaraj could be an indication that “the government intends to continue its engagement with Iran despite US sanctions”.
 
For the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, the U.S. withdrawal on “Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action”, the header for the nuclear deal, could prove to be a “major setback”. The significant “political gains” of Modi owes largely to the “cheap oil price”. Delhi, the capital of India, has been sourcing oil from Iran in major quantities, for the capital needs constant energy supply for meeting the goal to provide electricity to “300 million Indians living in rural parts of the country”.
 
According to analysts, the above mentioned strategy is survival key for the BJP, the current ruling party of India, while the party can’t sacrifice the said “electoral strategy”.
