- New Delhi: Keen to step up engagement in hydrocarbon sector with Iran, India has conveyed to the Persian Gulf nation that it was ready to clear nearly USD 6.5 billion of the dues for oil import from that country at the earliest, provided there was clarity on payment channel. The message has been conveyed to Iran even as Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to visit the oil-rich country later this month.
