India places order for Iranian oil ahead of US sanctions

Two Indian oil companies have placed orders to import Iranian crude next month, Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said Monday, defying a call from President Donald Trump’s administration for countries to completely cut-off the Islamic republic.

U.S. sanctions targeting Iran’s crude oil exports come into force from November 4, with Washington ratcheting up the pressure on governments and companies around the world to slash their Iranian oil imports to zero.

However, Oil Minister Pradhan said India would continue to purchase Iranian crude in November, according to Reuters.
