China, India plan Iran oil cuts

Reuters - -- (Reuters) -

China, India and Japan are planning cuts of at least 10 percent in Iranian crude imports as tightening U.S. sanctions make it difficult for the top Asian buyers to keep doing business with the OPEC producer.

The countries together buy about 45 percent of Iran's crude exports. The reductions are the first significant evidence of how much crude business Iran could lose in Asia this year as Washington tries to tighten a financial noose around Tehran.

The cuts would add to a European Union ban on Iran oil imports, which comes into effect on July 1, to restrict the flow of vital foreign exchange to Tehran under pressure over its nuclear program.

Iran should start feeling the vise tighten. What China and India are buying is at a discount.

The sanction don't stop the trading of goods (food, medicine, arms, building supplies, etc.) for the oil. Iran doesn't need to get much cash if it can get the consumables directly.

The sooner they cut all oil exports the sooner there will be war and then you will see much higher prices.

If this happens it will be a major move by China and India. Moreover, it will build tighter ties with both China and India.
