VIENNA, July 6. /TASS/ — the Parties agreed “to protect companies from the extraterritorial effect of US sanctions”.
The results of the Ministerial meeting of Iran and the “five” of international mediators (Russia, China, Britain, Germany and France) for a Joint comprehensive plan of action on Iran’s nuclear program (SVPD) demonstrated commitment of the parties to resist US pressure to carry out a nuclear agreement with Iran.

But by November, when the expected second wave, we need to develop solutions.” According to Le Drian, “extraterritorial measures of the United States, in fact aimed against all of the firms operations in dollars.” “It is therefore necessary to generate a response in cooperation with our partners”, — said the Minister, adding that it must be a response that “would allow Iran to continue to trade until it complies with its obligations.”
Le Drian also stressed that the policy waged by the United States, should be “destructive logic, when every man for himself”. “Tomorrow the U.S. will suffer,” warned the Minister.Intend to protect
