India will keep doing business with Tehran and sees no reason to seek a waiver from the United States that would protect buyers of Iranian oil from a fresh round of sanctions, a senior Indian cabinet minister said on Thursday.
“Why should we seek waiver from the U.S.? We have done business with Iran earlier and will continue to do business,” the minister, who has knowledge of the matter but did not want to be named as the issue is confidential, told Reuters.
The minister said government officials would visit Iran next week and find ways to pay for oil in light of U.S. financial measures designed to block the trade.

One wonders how Obama will respond... perhaps by sanctioning a New Delhi ice cream company?

I find no reason why India has to stop its traditional relations with Iran. Iran had been a long traditional and cultural partner of India for over a 1000 years atleast.

Vietnam will always be my number 1 , can't see it being toppled as most despicable.
India which is in attack mode now has abandoned its non alligned thinking mostly
however if the Iran case above is true and its a big if,then there is some hope India will be a country respected by all because its a country that controls its own destiny.
