India To Pay Gold Instead Of Dollars For Iranian Oil ~ Oil & Gold Markets Stunned



India is the first buyer of Iranian oil to agree to pay for its purchases in gold

instead of the US dollar,

DEBKAfile’s intelligence and Iranian sources report exclusively.

Those sources expect China to follow suit.

India and China take about one million barrels per day,

or 40 percent of Iran’s total exports of 2.5 million bpd.

Both are superpowers in terms of gold assets.

By trading in gold,

New Delhi and Beijing enable Tehran to bypass the upcoming freeze on its central bank’s assets

and the oil embargo

which the European Union’s foreign ministers agreed to impose Monday, Jan. 23.

The EU currently buys around 20 percent of Iran’s oil exports.

The vast sums involved in these transactions are expected, furthermore,

to boost the price of gold and depress the value of the dollar on world markets.
