India-Iran Relations Under the Shadow of the Iranian Nuclear Issue Challenges for India’s Diplomacy
India and Iran as two ancient civilisations have historically shared cordial relations with some occasional challenges. One such challenge in recent years came up when Iran was placed under international economic and political sanctions due to its nuclear programme. These sanctions, especially the unilateral ones, also had adverse implications on India-Iran bilateral ties. This posed several challenges for Indian foreign policy and diplomacy towards maintaining its relationship with Iran. While evaluating the implications of sanctions on India-Iran bilateral ties, this book chronicles India’s efforts to maintain its relation with Iran despite such challenges.
