US threatened European companies with sanctions
Washington fears that the EU will trade with Iran.
Advisor to the President for national security John Bolton said that Washington may impose sanctions against European countries that will trade with Iran. This was discussed in his interview to CNN.
It is possible, but it all depends on the actions of other governments… I Hope the Europeans realize that ultimately their interest to agree with us, – said Bolton.
We will remind, the President of the United States Donald trump has stated that it intends to withdraw from nuclear agreement with Iran and plans to restore sanctions that had operated previously. Then the American leader has threatened to impose economic restrictions against any country that helps Iran in obtaining nuclear weapons.
Not so long ago the US State Department announced new sanctions against defence structures of a number of countries. The list includes Russia, China, Iran and North Korea. Also restrictions affected some organizations from Turkey, Egypt and the UAE. Notification on new sanctions was published may 8 in the Federal register. These structures Washington accuses of violating the national legislation of the States on the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.
