India wants to buy an S-400 missile system from Russia. However, American officials say that if India makes this purchase, it risks US sanctions. This means that India may have to bear the brunt of the conflict between America and Russia.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, in a telephone call with his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, said that talks with the United States would be “meaningless,” unless sanctions are lifted. Rouhani also said that “if agreements with Europe are finalized, we’re ready to return to JCPOA commitments, and a meeting between Iran and the 5+1 is only possible when sanctions are lifted.”
