India's foreign ministry says Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif held discussions with Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Tuesday on issues of mutual interest, including the evolving situation in Afghanistan.
The Iranian Foreign Minister's visit comes after six-month-long exemptions from United States sanctions to India and seven other countries to buy oil from Iran ended.
After the US' announcement, India, the second largest buyer of Iranian oil after China, had said it was adequately prepared to deal with the impact of the decision to end waiver.
During the visit, India and Iran signed almost a dozen agreements, centrepiece of which was a deal on development of Chabahar port. The US had then set that deadline for countries across the globe to either fall in line or face US sanctions.
Zarif is making the trip three weeks after President Donald Trump chose to squeeze Iran, announcing that the United States will no longer grant sanctions exemption to Iran's oil customers.More news: Apple Releases New TV App

On the Iranian nuclear deal issue, Ms Swaraj told her Iranian counterpart that "India would like all parties to the agreement to continue to fulfil their commitments and all parties should engage constructively and resolve all issues peacefully and through dialogue", government sources added.
In May a year ago, the U.S. had brought back sanctions on Iran after withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal which was struck in 2015.
Official sources said Swaraj reiterated the position that a decision will be taken after the elections based on India's commercial considerations, energy security and economic interests.
Indo-Iran ties have been on a upswing in the last few years.
The Iranian Foreign Minister also said that a 60-day timeline had been given to EU-3 and other parties to the nuclear deal Iran signed with world powers, for restoring Iran's oil and banking channels.
