Sources: India prepares to pay $1.4 bln Iran oil dues

Indian refiners have got the green light to prepare to pay Iran $1.4 billion in oil dues, two sources with knowledge of the issue said, in one of the first signs that last month’s nuclear deal is helping Tehran unlock frozen funds. The landmark nuclear deal between Iran and six major world powers was struck on July 14 and sanctions could begin to be removed later this year if UN inspectors confirm Tehran is complying with its provisions. Indian Finance Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi asked refiners this month to prepare to pay Tehran two installment of $700 million, part of the money owed for oil imports, said the sources, who declined to be identified due to the sensitivity of the issue.
