STORY: India on Thursday (May 10) called for diplomacy to resolve the dispute over the Iran nuclear deal after the United States announced it was pulling out of the accord agreed with Tehran in 2015.
Indian foreign ministry spokesman, Raveesh Kumar, said all parties should engage constructively in order to resolve the issue.
The comments come a day after U.S. President Donald Trump announced plans to withdraw from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, as the accord is formally known, to limit Tehran’s nuclear program.
New Delhi has longstanding ties with Iran, which is also one of its top oil suppliers. But it has developed close political and security ties with the United States.
