European Union backs Iran after United States reinstates sanctions

07 August, 2018, 15:33 | Author: Charlene Valdez
  • President Trump reimposes sanctions to levy economic pressure on Iran

"We are always in favour of diplomacy and talks... but talks need honesty".

The two other signatories to the 2015 pact - Russian Federation and China - also continue to support it.

The European Union's diplomatic chief Federica Mogherini said the bloc deeply regrets the USA move.

But Iranian President Hassan Rouhani was unimpressed by the offer.

We are doing our best to keep Iran in the deal, to keep Iran benefiting from the economic benefits that the agreement brings to the people of Iran because we believe this is in the security interests of not only our region, but also of the world. "If there is one piece of global agreements on nuclear non-proliferation that is delivering, it has to be maintained", she said on Monday.

A second wave of sanctions that will more directly target Iran's petroleum industry is set to go into effect in 90 days.

Barkley pleads for patience with Chelsea boss Sarri
I think Chelsea has a fantastic squad, with fantastic players", the Brazilian told reporters. The 59-year-old Italian's style has been likened to Pep Guardiola's.

The sanctions that went into effect on Tuesday target Iranian access to U.S. banknotes and key economic sectors including cars and carpets.

Iran accused the U.S. of reneging on the nuclear agreement, signed by Barack Obama's administration, and of causing recent Iranian economic unrest.

"In my opinion, there is a good chance of that".

A lot of the practical effects of the sanctions are yet to be seen, as they depend heavily on which nations go along with U.S. demands.

Now, the sanctions ban most transactions with Iran's central bank; its network of ports and insurance companies; the purchase of Iranian sovereign debt; and trade in gold, graphite, aluminum and other precious metals.

In a joint statement on Monday from Britain, France, Germany and the European Union as a bloc, they said: "We deeply regret the reimposition of sanctions by the U.S".

Thomas wins WGC-Bridgestone by four shots in dominant style
Putnam earned $$612,000, a two-year tour exemption and a spot next week in the PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club in St. Woods, an eight-times champion at Firestone, dismissed speculation that his surgically-repaired back had bothered him.

The sanctions, which take effect at midnight on Monday in Washington, bar transactions with Iran in United States currency, gold, precious metals, graphite, coal and semi-finished metals, as well as large sales of Iranian rials, issuing Iranian debt and auto sanctions.

Trump's contempt for the nuclear deal dates back to his time as presidential candidate and on May 8, he made good on a pledge to pull America out of the worldwide agreement.

Most Iranians have tuned out the endless U.S. hostility, with which they have lived for four decades, so their anger is mostly directed at their own leaders. "Of course, American bullying and political pressures may cause some disruption, but the fact is that in the current world, America is isolated", Mr. Zarif told reporters, according to the semi-official ISNA agency.

"We've seen company after company announce that they are getting out of Iran", the officials said.

Asked about threats to close the Strait of Hormuz, Mr Bolton said that would be Iran's "worst mistake yet".

The new United States sanctions will likely slash oil supply.
