The unpleasant personal and political
relationship between the USA and Iran are very much evident to the whole world. So, to make Iran suffer the United States government
is leaving no any margin of error which could help Iran in any manner. Therefore, it would be very interesting to know how India paid due to the existing dispute among USA and Iran.
India has been trying from more than 10 years to declare the chief of Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) a terrorist organization ‘Masood Azhar’ as International Terrorist. But every time

United Nation Security Council Meeting (UNSC). But in 2019, meeting India again voiced the same and this time the scenario was very much different from India’s perspective. It was so because a few weeks before on
February 14, 2019, India suffered a huge loss of lives of Army Personnel due to the terrorist attack conducted under Masood Azhar’s instructions and is famously known as "Pulwama Attack". That is why this time India was very firm over its decision and the every participating country supported India over it except China in the meeting.

USA a belief that the Iranian might use this money to support the terror group like Hamas and Hezbullah as well as continues its
development of missiles.
However, as a helping hand, the
Washington government is working with the Delhi government to maintain the oil requirement of India with
Saudi Arabia. For this, UAE is prepared to export more oil to India. Ultimately, it was a win for the USA only just by lending a helping hand to India and make Iran suffer from more economic losses.
