New Euro­pean Sanc­tions Would Af­fect Nu­clear Deal

EME Outlook - - News -

Any new Euro­pean sanc­tions against Iran will have a direct ef­fect on the nu­clear deal struck be­tween world pow­ers and Tehran, Iran’s deputy for­eign min­is­ter said re­cently, ac­cord­ing to state me­dia.

“In case some Euro­pean coun­tries are fol­low­ing steps to put non-nu­clear sanc­tions against Iran in or­der to please the Amer­i­can pres­i­dent, they will be mak­ing a big mis­take and they

will see the direct re­sult of that on the nu­clear deal,” Ab­bas Araqchi said, ac­cord­ing to state me­dia.

“It’s bet­ter that Euro­pean coun­tries con­tinue their cur­rent ac­tion to per­suade Amer­ica to keep its prom­ises in the nu­clear deal and for that coun­try to ef­fec­tively ex­e­cute the deal in all its parts with good will and in a pro­duc­tive at­mos­phere.”

Araqchi’s com­ments were in re­ac­tion to a Reuters re­port that Britain, France and Ger­many have pro­posed fresh EU sanc­tions on Iran over its bal­lis­tic mis­siles and its role in Syria’s war to try to per­suade Wash­ing­ton to pre­serve the 2015 nu­clear deal with Tehran.
