India seeks way around Iran sanctions

Old-fashioned business practices being employed to expand bilateral trade currently worth $14bn.

    Some of Iran's trading partners are seeing the latest sanctions by the EU and the US as opportunity to expand their own trade with the Islamic republic.

    India has sent a delegation to explore more commercial opportunities with Iran to increase bilateral trade worth $14bn a year.

    Despite mounting US pressure, Al Jazeera's Prerna Suri reports, India is using an old-fashioned but effective way of conducting business to maintain its trade ties with Iran.
