New Delhi (Sputnik) — With the US waiver on sanctions against the purchase of Iranian crude extended to India ending, New Delhi has reiterated time and again that it would only follow UN-mandated sanctions. India put off the discussions on Iranian oil purchase until the national elections were over.
In the background of the statement made by Indian Ambassador to the US Harsh Shringla that India ended its imports of Iranian oil last month, Brahma Chellaney from the Indian think-tank Centre for Policy Research, said that going by appearances, India has already been complying with US President Donald Trump's Iran sanctions.

For making such a remark, Chellaney had to face a barrage of criticism on social media.
"Do not teach international diplomacy to Modi", said Amit Dubey, who has the twitter handle @amitdubey1236.

All nations work for their self-interest was a point that this user wanted geo-strategist Chellaney to acknowledge.
