The United States promised not to give the EU or anyone else to circumvent us sanctions against Iran
Advisor to the President for national security John Bolton stated that the United States will not allow the EU or anyone else to circumvent us sanctions against Iran.
At a conference on Iran in new York, Mr Bolton stressed that the United States will be “aggressive and steadfast” implementation of economic sanctions against Tehran.
According to the results of the Ministerial meeting in the framework of the UN General Assembly in new York, Russia, UK, France, Germany, China agreed to establish to make payments to Iran of a special mechanism, which should help to neutralize the effects of American sanctions imposed against the country, and at the same time to rescue the Iranian nuclear deal in 2015. This decision is intended to reassure Tehran on the eve of the adoption of the second package of U.S. sanctions.
John Bolton noted that “the EU is strong in rhetoric and weak in relation to bringing the case to the end.”
“We will follow the development of this structure, which has not yet been established nor has the creation date”, — he said (quoted by Reuters).
U.S. Secretary of state Michael Pompeo noted that the US is disappointed by the decision of the countries-participants of a Joint comprehensive plan of action (SVPD) to create a special mechanism for payments to Iran and consider it “one of the most counterproductive measures possible to imagine.” He is confident that such a step contributes to “strengthening the position of Iran as a country sponsoring terrorism.”
We will remind, in may the US President, Donald trump has announced the release of the nuclear deal, saying that it was “based on lies”. US sanctions against Iran were restored on the night of 7 August. The other members of the SVPD has repeatedly said that a deal needs to be saved. The EU asked the US to exclude European companies from the scope of the sanctions, but Washington refused. In the EU the restrictive measures of the USA against Iran was later cancelled by the European Commission.
