India is in talks with the United States to extend a waiver on sanctions imposed on Iran's crude oil exports, a senior Indian official said on Thursday.

India, Iran's second-biggest oil customer after China, has already reduced its intake of Iranian oil but has not decided whether to end purchases completely.

"We are talking to the U.S. on energy-related aspects, including the waiver from sanctions. It is a continuous process," said Sanjay Sudhir, joint secretary for international co-operation in the oil ministry.
