New Indian ambassador submits credentials to Zarif

February 25, 2019

TEHRAN – In a meeting on Monday, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif received a copy of the credentials of the new Indian Ambassador to Tehran Gaddam Dharmendra.

Iran and India share historical and cultural ties. Iran has been the main supplier of crude oil to India, even at the peak of Western sanctions between 2012 and 2016. Although the volume of business was affected by the sanctions, the partnership did not weaken.

In the face of new anti-Iran sanctions, India recently got an exemption from the U.S., under which Indian companies are allowed to import a maximum of 300,000 barrels a day of crude oil from Iran.
