    I never said Iran was in that deal..........India and China are............on the money deal they are in agreement....stop worrying about a few border spats.............they only have a quarter of the population of the earth between them. Probably fighting over a sandwich.

    ??? ^^ NOT!!! I do not say----I advise against. There was a
    time in my long drawn out life that I worked in proximity to lots of
    young Indian and Iranian professionals-----new immigrants to
    the USA-----Iranian disdain was palpable-----be not dismayed---
    it was more intense toward Pakistanis----and MOST intense toward
    muslim Indians. BEWARE, modi

    It is not about personal fillings to each other, it is about economy. India needs Iranian oil and routes for exporting its goods, Iran needs Indian money and investment. As long as there is mutual interest, there will be cooperation.

    Of course---I hope the mutual benefit HOLDS up. HOWEVER there is
    always Kashmir as an EMOTIONAL issue for angry muslims-----the good
    news is that most Indian muslims are sunnis (some Sufis and some Shiites)----the very first Indian I knew well was a Shiite from New Dehli----
    he harbored LOTS OF HATRED against hindus------almost ludicrous----
    as far as he was concerned all of the Indian subcontinent was and STILL
    is DA MUHGHAL EMPIRE. He got pissed if I spoke admiringly of
    the saris the hindu ladies wore or of HINDU ART. As far as he was
    concerned MUSLIMS INVENTED DAL AND CHAPPATIS. A point of
    interest-----he studied farsi as if it is a "holy language"----didn't know a
    word of Arabic. (I was young----this stuff confused and fascinated me
    back then)

    Can you say why the Iranians you knew back then had such attitude towards Pakistanis and Muslim Indians?

    Well, the time has come. The US reinstalled sanctions against Iran in full scale including more than 700 people and entities in banking sector, oil industry, transport companies and so on. Eight countries - China, India, S Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Italy, Greece and Turkey - got temporal waivers allowing them to buy Iranian oil for 180 days. Also, if I understand properly, the sanctions wont include the nuclear power station in Busher.
    It isnt clearly about Swift yet. The US vowed to impose sanctions against it if the system will continue cooperation with Iranian banks. The system cut off some Irsnian banks (without specification as far as Im aware) citing not American sanctions but 'the need in stability of global banking system. It is unclear whether they will cut off a limited number of banks or Iran as a whole.

    NEW DELHI — India has welcomed a U.S. decision to allow it to continue to import Iranian crude oil and develop an Iranian port for trade with Afghanistan despite Washington's reimposition of sanctions on Iran.

    The spokesman of India's External Affairs Ministry, Raveesh Kumar, said Friday that Iranian crude oil is very important for India's energy needs and security.

    He declined to say how much crude oil India will continue to import from Iran.

    During the April-June quarter, India bought 5.67 million tons of Iranian oil.

    The United States has granted waivers on the sanctions to eight countries, bowing to concerns that a complete end to imports of oil from Iran would cause economic disruptions.
