India rejects unilateral sanctions against Iran

Tabriz, East Azarbaijan, Indian foreign minister on Saturday underlined that her country will not accept unilateral sanctions against Iran.

The Indian government accepts only the UN resolutions on Iran sanctions and will not recognize unilateral sanctions, Sushma Swaraj said during a meeting with Governor General of Iran's northwestern province of East Azarbaijan Majid Khodabakhsh.

She noted that the EU and in particular, the UK, France and Germany should be committed to their obligations enshrined in the nuclear deal also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

India is ready to do its trade exchanges with Iran in Euro if the EU do the same, the Indian minister added.

US President Donald Trump announced on May 8 that Washington would pull out of the Iran nuclear deal and reinstate nuclear sanctions on Iran.

This is while most world powers, including Russia, China, and the European Union have repeatedly stressed that keeping the deal is in the interest of the world peace and security.
