Top level EU talks on Iran nuclear deal after US exit

Top level EU talks on Iran nuclear deal after US exit

The US withdrawal from the Iran deal has upset Washington's European allies, cast uncertainty over global oil supplies and raised the risk of conflict in the Middle East.

If this administration has a plan and plays it right, Iran's choices will be more limited and its regime could even be endangered, something not possible the day before president Trump withdrew from the JCPOA.

So far, China, France, Russia, Britain, the European Union and Iran remain in the accord, which placed controls on Iran's nuclear program and led to a relaxation of U.S. economic sanctions against Iran and companies doing business there.

The sanctions clash came as some European countries, including France and Germany, served notice that they are considering counter measures to allow their firms to keep trading with Iran.

Zarif said little to reporters Tuesday but suggested he wanted to discuss the deaths of dozens of Palestinians in Gaza as well as the nuclear deal, which U.S. President Donald Trump withdrew from last week.

Russian Federation stands for discussion by all remaining participants to the JCPOA on the Iranian nuclear program regarding joint compensation measures for unilateral United States sanctions against Iran, Sergei Lavrov said.

Under the agreement, negotiated by the United States, three European Union powers, Russia, and China, Iran was banned from pursuing a nuclear program in exchange for economic sanctions being lifted against the Islamic nation.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, the administration's strategy "deemphasizes U.S. military intervention, instead focusing on a series of moves to embolden an Iranian population that has increasingly grown angry at the ruling regime".

Other parties to the JCPOA, and especially its three European signatories, must take necessary action to safeguard the accord and to implement their commitments-which they proved incapable of fully performing even while the USA was nominally a party to the deal, due to the obstructions by the Trump Administration-and to proceed from giving pledges to taking practical action without any preconditions. 'We conduct business in all countries, including Iran, in accordance with all relevant UK, EU or other national sanctions and export control regulations'.

Germany's minister for economic affairs, Peter Altmaier, said on Sunday that Berlin would try to "persuade the USA government to change its behavior".

"Do we accept extra-territorial sanctions?" The answer is no, ' Le Maire said. "The answer is no".

In her latest comments on Iran and sanctions, Chancellor Merkel said: "It is in our interest to have a strong transatlantic relationship". "Indeed I would argue that they thought they could act with impunity", he added. "We couldn't reach agreement with our E3 partners", referring to Britain, France and Germany, all signatories of the Iran deal.

Iran has no reason to include the United States in any further discussions.
