EghtesadOnline: Iran may resort to various ways of reducing the impact of US sanctions on its oil exports and those tactics could include secret oil shipments without trackers on tankers, bartered trades, discounts and extended credit periods on oil sales, analysts say.
EghtesadOnline: The US embargo on Iran's oil shipments has put Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a quandary. If he plays along, India could find itself on the right side of US President Donald Trump on trade, but lose cheap supplies and precious foreign exchange. Oil imports from Iran totaled about $9 billion in the year ended March and substituting some of the contracts with more North American crude will help India lower the $24.5 billion trade surplus it runs with the world’s largest economy, Bloomberg reported.
EghtesadOnline: President Hassan Rouhani appeared on Tuesday to threaten to disrupt oil shipments from neighboring countries if Washington presses ahead with its goal of forcing all countries to stop buying Iranian oil.
