Europeans will ‘do everything’ to protect companies in Iran: French presidency

Paris (AFP) – European officials will “do everything” possible to protect the interests of companies working in Iran, which may now be exposed to new US sanctions against the country, an official in the French presidency said Wednesday.

Following President Donald Trump’s decision to pull out of the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran and reimpose sanctions, European governments are going “to do everything to protect the interests” of their companies, said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity.
