In the shadow of the American ban, India signed an agreement with Russia to purchase the S-400 Defense Missile System. Now the US is miffed about India importing oil from Iran despite the US sanctions still on Iran. US President Donald Trump has warned the entire world, referring to Iran’s ban, that if a country purchases crude oil from Iran after November 4th, then it is ready to take strictest steps.
Donald Trump warned of importing crude oil from Iran, saying that “America will see the countries which do not reduce the import of crude oil by zero” by November 4. Significantly, countries like India and China are asked to continue importing oil from Iran, Trump said, “We will also see them.”
Trump had separated the US from the Iran nuclear agreement in 2015 and again banned it. Trump has asked countries importing oil from Iran to reduce their import by November 4. At the same time, they have also warned of banning countries not doing so.
Earlier, the US president said that after buying a S-400 air defense system from Russia for $ 5 billion, the situation would be clear about whether there is a penal action under US law against India. Last month, the US had made this ban on China. Then China bought Fighter Aircraft and Missile Defense Systems from Russia.
The US has enacted the ‘Countering America’s Adversary Through Sanctions Act’ (CAATSA) law to ban its opposition. Under this, only the President has the right to exempt India from US sanctions on arms deal with Russia.
CAATSA is the United States federal law. Under this, bans have been imposed on Iran, South Korea and Russia. When asked about the deal between India and Russia, Trump said on Wednesday, “India will know.” He said that India is going to know the consequences soon.
