"India won't seek a waiver of U.S. sanctions on Iran and continues to buy crude oil from the country, Indian Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai said Tuesday. 'We have accepted sanctions which are made by the United Nations. Other sanctions do not apply to individual countries. We don't accept that position,' Mr. Mathai told a news conference. ... U.S. President Barack Obama on Dec. 31 signed a law imposing sanctions against banks that trade with the Iran's central bank, through which much of Iranian oil sales are cleared." (01/17/12)
