This book chapter, to be published in a Handbook on South Asian Foreign Policy, focuses on India’s policy toward Iran. The chapter will cover foreign, security, defence and nuclear dimensions of India’s engagement as it evolved over time from pre-independence to the present day. The country’s position on developments in the broader Middle East, energy security, ties to Arab Gulf states, interests in Afghanistan and growing strategic alignment with the United States have all played a key role in determining the trajectory of its Iran policy as will be captured in this chapter.
