EU To Trump: Stop Threatening Us With Tariffs

EU head criticizes Trump for hostile policies

In a letter to European Union leaders ahead of their meeting Wednesday night in Sofia, Donald Tusk said that with friends like Donald Trump, the European Union could ask who needs enemies. The incident shows that Tehran has suspended its strategic restraint.

"With the withdrawal of the U.S. from the treaty the banks are no longer ready to fund Iranian projects for fear of secondary sanctions", Danieli CEO Alessandro Trivillin said. Tel Aviv has been eyes and ears and not Europe in making Trump frame his mind about Iran as the non-trustworthy country.

Hu Weijia - EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini is scheduled to meet with the foreign ministers of Britain, France and Germany on Tuesday to discuss the Iran nuclear deal.

Last night the Netherlands Foreign Minister Stef Blok said he would try to protect European companies from the "consequences" of the USA secondary sanctions when he meets Trump administration officials.

"We have to do whatever we can and that's what we're working with". He didn't give a specific reason for his departure. His efforts on North Korea, especially in managing communications with Kim Jong-un who is arriving in Singapore in June for the talks, may have earned him some brownie points.

Leaders of Europe are as much to blame for having relinquished their historical European legacy in favor of blindly following the American model and policies, only to now find themselves struggling to salvage Total's contract to develop Iran's South Pars natural gas field - the world's largest, the Airbus aircraft supply deal and Renault and Peugeot deals, which will lose tens of billions of USA dollars, among others. The biggest importer of Iranian oil is China.

"Under the prerequisite of not violating its global obligations, the Chinese side will continue to carry out normal and transparent practical cooperation with Iran", said foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang.

"If the JCPOA is supposed to continue, it was a good start and it has sent an important political message, but this is not the end of the work", Zarif said on his flight back to Tehran, according to state news agency IRNA.

"We have a few weeks left to save it", he said.

Tusk said he wanted the European leaders to "reconfirm" that they will stay in the Iran deal, as long as Tehran respects it - although Europe must now find a way to make up for the United States sanctions on Iran that Trump will reactivate.

The US has threatened sanctions against any countries or companies continuing to do business with Iran, which has gone over poorly in European capitals. "We are closely monitoring the developments". In the meanwhile, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said he hoped Iran would stay in the agreement.

Also, EC has made a decision to allow European Investment Bank to facilitate investment of European companies in the Islamic Republic of Iran, he maintained.

The bloc that also comprises Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, also plans to begin three years of talks with Iran that aim to create a free trade zone.
