Why does US wants other countries to stop oil imports or else face sanctions?
As per news,
"Without question, they should be reduced. That's what we've been telling them in our bilateral meetings. They should be preparing, now, to go to zero (by November 4)," the official said
Also from here,
external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj had said that “India follows only UN sanctions, and not unilateral sanctions by any country” days after President Donald Trump pulled out of the Iran deal.
Since Iran is the third largest supplier to India, it is not easy for India to stop oil imports from Iran.
But my main question is why does US wants to stop it?
