US secretary of state Mike Pompeo is visiting India—with tonnes of oil and gas for sale

Secretary of state Mike Pompeo’s visit to New Delhi from June 25-27 will have a special focus on US fossil fuel exports to India. Indian imports of US crude oil rose three-fold month-on-month in March, the latest month for which Energy Information Administration data is available. Further, in April, the US waiver, which allowed India to import oil from Iran despite sanctions, expired.
