India has taken the right approach on US sanctions against Iran

High decibel drumbeats by the Trump administration in Washington designed to subdue Iran economically through wholesale sanctions have led to a mistaken popular conclusion in India.

This mistaken conclusion is that since the United States unilaterally withdrew from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) — popularly known as the Iran nuclear deal — six months ago, the Islamic government in Tehran has been sitting idly, and is helpless against the world’s biggest economy and only superpower.
