WASHINGTON - The United States will exempt India, South Korea and five other countries from financial sanctions because they have significantly cut purchases of Iranian oil, two congressional aides told Reuters on Monday.

One aide said Turkey, South Africa, Taiwan, Malaysia, and Sri Lanka would also be exempted from the sanctions.
