France Wants to Defend EU Firms From US Sanctions on Iran- French Minister

France Wants to Defend EU Firms From US Sanctions on Iran- French Minister

Mogherini will host a consultation of German, French, and British foreign ministers on May 15 to discuss the future of the Iran accord and the US' latest threat.

Earlier, following his presidential campaign promise, US President Donald Trump announced that the US would withdraw from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and vowed to re-impose economic sanctions against Iran.

Speaking during a visit to London, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian also condemned as "intolerable" comments by Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov after a knife-attack in Paris on Saturday. German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas acknowledged, however, that protecting European companies from potential United States penalties could be hard.

"We will look at potential options for supporting continued sanctions relief for Iran to ensure we meet our commitments under the deal, as well as calling on Iran to continue to abide by the restrictions the deal places upon their nuclear program", he said.

Mahmoud Abbas lashes out at US after embassy move
By evening, at least 55 Palestinians , including eight minors, were killed, the Gaza Health Ministry said. Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas has condemned what he called Israeli " massacres " in Gaza .

"The US leaving an worldwide agreement does not mean that the global agreement is null and void", said the French politician, on the eve of a Brussels meeting between the Iranian, French, British and German foreign ministers.

The EU's executive arm, the European Commission, has been examining measures to counter the introduction of any US sanctions that might harm European businesses and is expected to unveil them to EU leaders at a meeting in Bulgaria on Wednesday.

French President Emmanuel Macron has said he wants to secure a wider deal after the US withdrawal with four pillars: limiting Iran's nuclear program in the short and the long term, restraining its ballistic missile program and curbing what the West views as its destabilising behaviour in Syria, Yemen, Iraq and Lebanon.

Israel and Iran engaged in an extensive military exchange on the heels of Trump's decision to leave the deal.

Dustin Johnson the former number 1 player in the world was near the leaderboard but needed to win to keep his ranking. One can only hope he continues the surge on Sunday, where patrons will wear pink in honor of Mother's Day.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani asked the European Union to stand against the United States' "illegal and illogical" actions, saying that Tehran could stay in the accord only if it fully benefits from it. But in an interview on ABC's "This Week" program, Bolton said: "That's not the policy of the administration".

The files - declared "authentic" by the USA government - document Iran's extensive work on nuclear weapons, including planned site tests, miniaturization of warheads and ballistic missile delivery vehicles.

Bolton said Europe was still digesting Trump's move last week.

"I have to tell you that I do not believe that regime change in Tehran is the objective that we should be seeking", Johnson said.
