‘Anyone considering business deals with…’: US warns of sanctions after India-Iran ink Chabahar Port deal

Hours after India signed an agreement to operate the Chabahar Port in Iran for 10 years, the United States has warned that “anyone” considering business deals with Tehran needs to be aware of the “potential risk of sanctions.” The US State Department Principal Deputy Spokesperson, Vedant Patel, however, also said that it will let the Indian government speak on its foreign policy goals.

“We are aware of these reports that Iran and India have signed a deal concerning the Chabahar Port, I would let the government of India speak to its own foreign policy goals, vis-a-vis the Chabahar Port as well as its own bilateral relationship with Iran,” Vedant Patel said in the press briefing on Monday (local time).

He added: “I would just say…US sanctions on Iran remain in place and we will continue to enforce them.”
