Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif held talks with his Indian counterpart, Sushma Swaraj, in New Delhi on Tuesday to discuss ways of preserving mutual trade relations as well as other areas of shared interest. 
Zarif described the meeting as useful, saying such dialogue would certainly be helpful in sustaining the Asian countries' ties.  
The two sides discussed a range of subjects, including trade and energy relations, Chabahar Port, Afghan security issues and the latest developments with regard to Iran's 2015 nuclear deal that was violated by the United States last year.
"Trade between Iran and India stands at a high level at present and the two countries are trying to sustain it," Zarif told reporters after the meeting.
