Iran’s oil India’s first priority in foreign policy: Report

IRNA – A leading Indian electronic media in its report, said Narendra-Modi’s government is focusing more on foreign policy, and the issue of Iranian oil is a priority.

India’s electronic media ‘The Citizen’ in an article on India’s nationwide election said for most countries dealing with the US is the most important part of foreign policy despite the fashionable talk of our living in a multi-polar world that we live in a financially unipolar world dominated by the US dollar with US imposing sanctions on other states, either through an obedient UN Security Council, or otherwise, is often ignored.

This electronic media added: the first topic for us is US’ sanctions on Iran, and the second is the US sanctions imposed on states entering into ‘significant’ defense deals with Russia in the context of the deal with Russia on S-400 anti-missile system.

The three countries — India, Iran, the US — form a geopolitical triangle where contrary to Euclid’s theorem one side is longer than the sum of the other two.

On May 8, 2018, President Donald Trump announced that the US was walking out of the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, technically known as JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action).

Trump gave no valid reason for his decision for the good reason that there is none. He has a visceral urge to undo Obama’s legacy and to side with Israel whether what it does is right or wrong.

This media in its editorial added: Let us look at India’s reaction.

Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said, ‘India has always maintained that Iran’s nuclear issue should be resolved peacefully through dialogue and diplomacy by respecting Iran’s right to peaceful use of nuclear energy as also the international community’s strong interest in the exclusively peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear programme.”

India noted that “all parties should engage constructively to address and resolve issues that have arisen with respect to the JCPOA’, the leading Indian electronic media emphasized.
