India in the Middle (not hosted by GlobalPDX)
November 28, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Join WorldOregon for a lively discussion on current events and issues in global affairs!
Despite U.S. sanctions, India continues to buy oil from Iran and weapons from Russia. Somehow, India was able to receive a waiver for the Iranian oil, and the White House has chosen not to invoke the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (Caatsa) over the Russian weapons. This is possibly because of past and pending large arms deals between the U.S. and India. Let’s talk about these shifts in India’s trading policy. Are they indicative of wider trends in global trade? How much leverage does the U.S. have to influence India’s trade. Can India continue to seemingly play both sides?
