NEW DELHI, May 17 : India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Iran this week, seeking to boost trade with the oil-rich country after international sanctions were lifted this year, it was announced on Tuesday.
Iran was India's second largest supplier of crude oil until 2011/12, when sanctions forced New Delhi to reduce its dependence on the Gulf state.
The Ministry of External Affairs said Modi would meet President Hassan Rouhani during a two-day visit starting Saturday.    ?AFP
