India and South Korea agreed with the U.S. on the outline of deals that would allow them to keep importing some Iranian oil, according to Asian officials with knowledge of the matter.The waivers would ensure at least some Iranian oil continues to flow to the global market, potentially calming fears of a supply crunch and further suppressing international oil prices just before midterm elections in the U.S.The U.S. State Department Wednesday referred to comments by spokesman Robert Palladino at a press briefing Tuesday that while the goal of the U.S. remains to get buyers to cut Iranian oil purchases to zero, it's prepared to work with countries that are reducing their imports on a case-by-case basis.
