Jagran Bureau, New Delhi. In the last one month, there have been three official level talks between India and Iran and in all these talks, Iranian officials have made only one request to India. The insistence is that just as India is still buying crude from Russia, ignoring international sanctions, it should also buy oil from Iran. In return, Iran will give India all the facilities that Russia is giving in the purchase of oil.
Ongoing talks between India and Iran
Although External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar has demanded permission to export oil to Iran at the international forum, but India has not yet made any such firm promise to Iran. Diplomatic sources familiar with the ongoing talks between Iran and India said that Tehran is very excited by the way India has intensified its dialogue with Iran in recent months.
Discussions on buying oil
In June, Iran’s Foreign Minister Amir Abdollahian first visited New Delhi, followed by Deputy Foreign Minister Mehdi Safary’s visit to India, and now Foreign Secretary Vinay Kwatra spoke to Iran’s Deputy Minister of Political Affairs Dr. Ali Bagheri Kani. happened. In these three talks, two issues have been the most talked about.
Chabahar port also on the agenda
One, how to take forward the projects related to Chabahar Port and secondly, how to bring the energy business back on track. During his European visit in June, External Affairs Minister Jaishankar had asked in an international forum why Iran and Venezuela were not being allowed to supply oil.
European countries are also raising their voice
Iran has not received such support from the foreign minister of any major country in recent times. After this statement of Jaishankar, some European countries have also raised their voice in support of Iran. European countries are worried about the possibility of disruption of oil and gas supplies from Russia.
That’s why Iran wants to associate itself with India
It has also been reported that talks with Iran on nuclear plant control may also start after President Biden’s talks in the Gulf region soon. It should be noted that in the year 2018-19, sanctions have been imposed on Iran under the leadership of America. Before that, India has been one of Iran’s largest oil buyer countries. India has stopped buying crude from Iran after the year 2019. If a big oil buyer country like India returns again, it will be very positive for Iran’s economy.
