After US call, India may be preparing for Iran oil import cut

Obama’s genocidal JCPOA is coming apart for the mullahs in Tehran. India imports billions of dollars worth of oil from the Islamic Republic of Iran, and the loss of India’s business would be a significant economic blow. Ambassador Nikki Haley was recently in India, to lobby India’s leadership into reconsidering its relations with Iran. India is wisely reevaluating who it buys oil from, since the new U.S economic sanctions against Iran will begin on November 4, 2018. President Trump has been incredible. Unlike his pro-jihad predecessor, Trump has been unrelenting in preventing Iran from going nuclear. However, none of this may have been possible without Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, as nobody fought harder to stop the JCPOA in the pre-Trump world of insanity and inept American leadership.

The warning to refiners comes as the US urges countries around the world, including India, to comply with the sanctions the US is reimposing on Iran following President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

On Thursday, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley called on India to rethink its relationship with Iran.

Haley said she understood India “can’t change its relationship with Iran in a day” but said she used a meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi to encourage a reassessment.

“I also think for the future of India, and the future of being able to get resources and who they’re dependent on, I would encourage them to rethink their relationship with Iran,” she was quoted as having told local broadcaster NDTV after an address in New Delhi….
