India will continue to import oil from Iran without violating any international law, and has requested the United States and the European Union to take into account the country's oil needs, oil minister Jaipal Reddy told reporters on Friday.

The United States exempted Japan and 10 EU nations from financial sanctions because they have significantly cut purchases of Iranian oil, but left Iran's top customers China and India exposed to the possibility of such steps.
