strategic cooperation with Iran has become absolutely critical for securing India’s interests in Afghanistan and Central Asia (Illustration: C R Sasikumar) Related News India has every reason to hope for a positive outcome in the ongoing talks at Lausanne Switzerland between Iran and the major powers to resolve their longstanding nuclear dispute Although the negotiators have missed the self-set deadline of March 31 they are said to be closer than ever before to concluding a broad set of understandings on limiting Iran’s ability to manufacture nuclear weapons in return for the lifting of international sanctions against Tehran mounted over the last decade and more US President Barack Obama and his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani deserve strong support from New Delhi for their persistence with the negotiations amid strong political opposition in both countries The agreement is an important step towards ending the prolonged confrontation between Iran and the West and it could transform the geopolitics of the Middle East opening up considerable diplomatic space for India While Iran had loomed large in India’s considerations on energy security Afghanistan and the engagement with Central Asia the escalating conflict between America and Iran severely constrained Delhi’s freedom of action beyond India’s northwestern frontiers As the US ends its combat role in Afghanistan strategic cooperation with Iran has become absolutely critical for securing India’s interests in Afghanistan and Central Asia The further decline in oil prices that is likely to follow the agreement will be a huge financial boon for India which imports most of its hydrocarbons Some are speculating that oil could hit as low as $20 a barrel once the West eases sanctions on Iran’s petroleum sector and Tehran ramps up production in the coming months and years Above all the nuclear deal between Iran and the US is a vindication of Delhi’s diplomatic pragmatism that unfolded since India conducted nuclear tests in May 1998 While three successive prime ministers — Atal Bihari Vajpayee Manmohan Singh and Narendra Modi — sought an accommodation with the global nuclear order ideologues on the left and right in Delhi denounced India’s atomic engagement with America A series of Indian votes at the International Atomic Energy Agency a decade ago in favour of the international community and against Iran came under extra fire Many in Delhi demanded that India stand by Iran rather than secure an end to its own nuclear isolation Delhi would have looked utterly stupid today if it had abandoned the civil nuclear initiative with the US in the name of “third-world solidarity” That Tehran despite its many problems with America would eventually make a deal of its own with Washington was recognised by realists in Delhi’s foreign policy establishment In assessing the prospective nuclear deal between Iran and the US it will be quite easy to get lost in the debate over technical issues that will dominate the international discourse To be sure there are many technical questions relating to a range of issues — including the future of Iran’s uranium enrichment and plutonium reprocessing programmes the extent of permissible research and development for peaceful purposes the rigour of international inspections and the pace of removing sanctions These questions have been at the heart of the talks between Washington and Tehran since they announced an interim nuclear agreement at the end of 2013 under which Iran suspended its enrichment programme and the US eased some sanctions Many of these will need to be sorted out before the final agreement is worked out by June 30 this year Yet the motivations for the negotiations and the consequences arising from the nuclear deal are deeply political Although both the US and Iran have insisted that the talks are limited to the nuclear issue their goal is to seek a normalisation of bilateral relations Delhi should also not be taken in by the veneer of multilateralism that surrounds the talks in Lausanne Although the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany (the P5+1) are conducting the talks with Iran this is really about hard bilateral bargaining between Washington and Tehran In the last few months some major powers like France have been complaining that Washington and Tehran tend to present decisions already taken at the bilateral level for approval in the multilateral context Although there is strong support from the public opinion in both countries for resolving the nuclear dispute and rebuilding bilateral ties there is powerful political resistance in Washington and Tehran to a nuclear accommodation In Washington the Republicans friends of Israel supporters of the conservative Arab states and the non-proliferation purists will oppose any deal with Iran Similarly in Tehran those chanting “death to America” for more than three decades will find it difficult to stomach the prospect of a positive engagement with the US Yet there has been a convergence of interests between Washington and Tehran over the last decade — for example in ousting the Taliban from Afghanistan and Saddam Hussein from Iraq Today they are on the same side in fighting the Islamic State in Iraq But many contentions between the two remain And some of those will survive a nuclear deal Progress on the nuclear issue and improved ties with Iran will significantly expand America’s options in the Greater Middle East After two debilitating wars in Iraq and Afghanistan Obama is trying to develop a more realistic American approach to the region For Iran as a nation the extended confrontation with America has been very costly Any political détente between the two will set the stage for a comprehensive reordering of the regional balance of power For its part Delhi must gear up to deal with a region that has not got high-level Indian political attention in recent years As it looks forward to new opportunities in Iran Delhi must also reach out to its Arab neighbours some of whom are deeply concerned about the consequences of a US-Iran rapprochement To secure its massive political and economic stakes in the Middle East Delhi needs to take a fresh strategic look at the region discard many of its outdated political assumptions and initiate a sustained political

download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express News Network | Published: May 31 2016 12:45 am Maharashtra Agriculture Minister Eknath Khadse Top News At a function last week to mark two years of his government Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke about the changes ushered in since the NDA came to power in May 2014 through good governance while promising to root out corruption But the controversy involving a senior minister of the BJP in one of the largest states where the party is in power threatens to take some sheen off this claim The case involves purchase of a three-acre plot near Pune by Maharashtra Revenue Minister Eknath Khadse’s wife Mandakini and son-in-law Girish Chaudhari on April 27 this year for Rs 375 crore The charge the minister is facing is that even while a case was pending in the high court the land was sold to Khadse’s family and that the minister himself had held a meeting with officials of the state agency the Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation and from his own department on the compensation to be given to the original owner under the state Land Acquisition Act in the third week of March weeks before the transaction as a report in The Indian Express has revealed Shockingly Khadse has admitted to having convened the meeting while going on to defend himself saying that as long as the deal was legally sound he and his family members were within their rights as private citizens to purchase the land But the minister has erred and gravely at that in participating in a matter which has a material impact on his family’s interests — a clear conflict of interest Share This Article Related Article In most countries this would have invited penalties and led to a course correction Khadse is brazening it out but surely this should attract action from his party beyond just a rebuke Indeed he should be asked to quit That’s because the minister who is already facing multiple charges did not even recuse himself or make his interests public in the interests of transparency — a virtue his party has been highlighting as an achievement in its two years in office This comes on top of earlier cases of conflict of interest involving at least six ministers in the Maharashtra government — three of whom were forced to quit their positions on the boards of private firms after a report published in this newspaper in March this year The callous attitude on conflict of interest issues featuring politicians civil servants and corporate India is worrying India currently has a model code of conduct which says that any minister within two months of assuming office should sever all connection with the conduct and management of any business in which he previously had an interest But this is not enforceable unlike Canada’s Conflict of Interest Act and the US’s basic criminal conflict of interest statute which explicitly prohibit public officials from being involved in government decisions affecting their personal financial interests The time has come for India to consider adopting a similar rule-based approach For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: PTI | Karachi |
