Sushma says open for talks with Pakistan with terror rider

Sushma says open for talks with Pakistan with terror rider

New Delhi, May 28 There can not be any comprehensive dialogue with Pakistan as talks and terror can not go together, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said today, but asserted that engagements such as track-two diplomacy and NSA-level meetings will keep taking place.

Yet Reuters reported on May 30 that India's Reliance Industries, which owns the world's biggest refining complex in the state of Gujarat, has significant exposure to the us financial system and was wary of the USA sanctions.

The top Iranian diplomat is in India as part of worldwide consultations aimed at discussing continued mutual cooperation with world countries following the United States withdrawal from the JCPOA.

"We will be sending out teams of diplomats and specialists to talk about specific concerns with the plan for re-imposition of USA nuclear-related sanctions and next steps with Iran", the official said.

"He told me that if I can not come to North Korea, at least I should send the Minister of State, but the visit should take place", she said.

The US Treasury designated three Iranian entities and six individuals on Wednesday for committing human rights abuses and censorship, in what is the sixth round of sanctions since President Donald Trump left the nuclear deal on May 8.

Both teams will need to zone in on the turnover battle in game 7 with the victor in that factor likely taking the game as well. I didn't like the poor defense we were playing, but I like the pace. "We'll just have to play it by ear", D'Antoni says.

IT’S ON: White House Says Trump-Kim Summit ‘EXPECTED’ for June 12
South Korean media speculated that Mr Pompeo could make a third trip to Pyongyang after Kim Yong Chol's U.S. trip. North Korean diplomats and officials are not allowed to travel more than a few miles outside New York City.

Earlier Friday, in a tweet , he had called the North's reaction to his letter canceling the summit "warm and productive". Trump's announcement set off a head-spinning series of maneuvers from governments.

In similarly vague wording, President Hassan Rouhani said, "Iran weighs plans to remain in the agreement with the other five parties (China, France, Germany, Russia, and UK), provided that they ensure full benefits for Iran".

Iran is the second largest supplier of crude oil to India, supplying more than 425,000 barrels of oil per day, and India is one of the foreign investors in Iran's oil and gas industry.

"If the USA administration does not agree with Total staying in Iran, China will replace this company", he added. Union home minister Rajnath Singh followed up by saying that India was not averse to talks but Pakistan should take some initiative to curb infiltration and come forward to jointly take action against terrorists. Besides the US and Iran, France was joined by fellow European Union nations Germany and the United Kingdom, as well as China and Russian Federation.

India will reportedly pay for Iranian oil in rupees as the two countries seek to bypass the U.S. economic pressure on Tehran, industry officials have told the Sputnik news agency.

India has pledged to invest more than $500 million to develop the strategically important Chabahar Port, which is critical to India's outreach to Afghanistan and wider Central Asia.
