Is India defying Western sanctions on Iran?

 Iran is India's second-largest fuel supplier after Saudi Arabia, providing around 12 per cent of the country's crude oil needs.
But the US and Israel are trying to gather support for full economic sanctions against Iran by the end of June.

As Tehran and New Delhi plan to hit $25bn in annual bilateral trade in the next four years, it appears as if India is resisting the pressure.

So, why does India continue to trade with Iran despite the mounting international pressure?

Joining the discussion with presenter Adrian Finighan on Inside Story are guests: Sreeram Chaulia, the vice-dean of Jindal School of International Affairs, and author of International Organizations and Civilian Protection: Power, Ideas and Humanitarian Aid in Conflict Zones; Richard Weitz, a senior fellow and director for the Center for Political-Military Analysis at the Hudson Institute, and author/editor of several books including National Security Case Studies; and Mohammad Marandi, a political analyst and professor of American Studies at the University of Tehran, and currently a visiting professor at American University of Beirut.
