Podcast: Iran’s Relations with China and India – Simple Economics but Complicated Politics?
29 May 2019 | Strategy & Risk
To what extent can Iran’s relationship help it alleviate the pressure from the Trump administration on its economy? Will Beijing and New Delhi see Iran’s predicament as an exception or the first casualty in a world where the US has weaponised its position in the global economic system?
In this podcast, The Swedish Institute of International Affairs (UI) investigated the economic relations of Iran-China-India and the interplay with each respective country’s international political positions.
