India said on Tuesday it will decide on its oil imports after elections end this month, in line with its economic interests, a government source said.

Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif held talks on the issue with his Indian counterpart Sushma Swaraj during a visit to New Delhi, Reuters reported.

India has suspended imports of Iranian oil from May because of renewed US sanctions on Iran.

“On purchase of oil from Iran, EAM (External Affairs Minister) reiterated the position that a decision will be taken after the elections keeping in mind our commercial considerations, energy security and economic interests,” a government source said.
