"We will take care of them", Trump told reporters when asked about the decision of some countries like India and China to continue to purchase oil from Iran.

Brian Hook, head of the US State Department's Iran action group, and Francis Fannon, assistant secretary for energy resources, were to travel to India and later hold talks on Iran in Europe with European Union counterparts and the International Energy Agency. "During this trip, he will engage our allies & partners on our shared need to counter the entirety of the Iranian regime's destructive behavior", Nauert said.

It has given a November 4 deadline to its allies to bring down their import of Iranian oil to zero.

Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on Monday said that two state refiners have placed orders for importing crude oil from Iran in November. A phased reduction is what it has sought, as had been the policy under President Barack Obama before the signing of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action in 2015 that lifted the UN-mandated Iran sanctions reinforced by those imposed by the United States.

Noting that she has seen reports of India continuing to buy oil from Iran after November 4, she said this was a topic of conversation with the Indian government when Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was in India last month for the first 2+2 Dialogue.

The firm said China had also increased shipments from the Middle Eastern country by 29,000 bpd to 620,000 bpd, while cutting its U.S. purchases amid an ongoing trade spat with the United States.

"We believe that countries coming together and recognising the malign influence that Iran has had around the world is important".

United States officials confirmed that they were considering waivers for countries such as India that have sought to cut down on oil bought from Iran but will be unable, or unwilling, to stop entirely by Washington's deadline next month. "We know that Iran and the government of Iran has taken the benefits that it received under the JCPOA and they've poured that money not into their own population, not into the good of the people, not into its medical hospitals and things of that nature, but rather they've used it for its own nefarious programmes", Ms Nauert said. We'll see. So I'm not going to get ahead of him, but certainly when we hear about things such as purchasing oil or the S-400 systems, it's not helpful.

Special representative on Iran Brian Hook, accompanied by assistant secretary of state for energy Francis Fannon, will meet "Indian government counterparts for consultations", the state department announced Thursday.

Of the 220.4 million metric tonnes (million MT) of crude oil imported by India in 2017-18, about 9.4 per cent, was from Iran.
