Iran says Europeans must bear expenses for long-term interests

…from Press TV, Terhran

[ Editor’s Note My, my…the EU is doubling down on the Trump sanctions. Color me surprised at this move with some bite in it, forcing EU companies to support the EU line which I must say seems like a new kind of tug of war.

Did this catch the US off guard? We will know soon from Trump’s next Tweet, and I suspect it will be short and sweet. This is an interesting and unexpected move by the EU, and should boost the spirits of Europeans wanting their government to demonstrate that it is not a vassal of the US.

The big EU multinationals have not yet responded, and they may not publicly for now, choosing to work behind the scenes instead. We could be seeing a new era in government and big company economic-political relations.

The big showdown is going to come when the oil sanctions kick in, the biggest act of economic war that we will have seen to date. All those effected will have had time to plan their counter moves. China, for example, is going to use Iranian ships to move their oil.

We will now have to see how well they can coordinate their moves as the US is betting it can play the age old divide and conquer game with them. What other surprises are going to be sprung in the run up to the mid-term elections? We won’t have to wait long to see, as we are nearing the witching hour Jim W. Dean ]

The EU’s Mogherini is standing up to Trump to protect the EU’s not being seen as a US vassal

– First published … August 20, 2018

The European Union has threatened to impose sanctions on companies that stop doing business with Iran in compliance with the US sanctions snapback mechanism.

“If EU companies abide by US secondary sanctions, they will, in turn, be sanctioned by the EU,” Nathalie Tocci, an aide to the 28-nation bloc’s foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, told Britain’s BBC Radio 4 on Monday night.

On Monday, US President Donald Trump signed an executive order, re-imposing a first round of unilateral sanctions on Iran, which had been lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

The move came three months after Washington’s unilateral withdrawal from the accord despite objections from the other parties to the deal – France, Britain, Germany, Russia and China – and the international community.

In a tweet, Trump described the fresh measures against Tehran as “the most biting sanctions ever,” warning that the countries doing business with Iran will “NOT be doing business with the United States.”

However, Mogherini and foreign ministers of Britain, Germany and France issued a statement stressing that they deeply regretted the new US sanctions.

They also announced an update of the Blocking Statute to “protect EU companies doing legitimate business with Iran from the impact of US extraterritorial sanctions.”

Tocci further stressed the need for such steps “in order to signal, diplomatically, to the Iranians that Europeans are serious” about the nuclear deal. The potential EU sanctions, the official added, were “politically and symbolically” an important step.

During a trip to New Zealand on Tuesday, Mogherini called on European firms to defy Trump over Iran.

“We are doing our best to keep Iran in the deal, to keep Iran benefiting from the economic benefits that the agreement brings to the people of Iran,” she said. “We are encouraging small and medium enterprises in particular to increase business with and in Iran as part of something [that] for us is a security priority.”

The second phase of US sanctions against Tehran will come into effect in November targeting Iran’s oil industry and foreign financial institutions with the Central Bank of Iran.

In a televised interview on Monday, President Hassan Rouhani said that Trump wanted the entire world to impose sanctions on Iran, but had failed to achieve that goal.

“Even today, which sanctions have been re-imposed [by the United States], Europe has stood against America. This is while Europe was always an ally of America,” Rouhani said.

  1. God only knows , what is at play behind the scenes in the minds of the cabal mafia that includes the game changers world wide , maybe this traum is in bed with the mullahs and sabre rattling bc it suits and is probably part of the zio- khazarain cabal mafia game , which most of world gov’s and leaders are part of and players or in the manipulation of the playing the shee-ple and so as keep them on edge in order to scare the crap out of them so their so called selected and appointed gov’s with the shee-ple blessing introduce more draconian measures to take away more of their rights even more and tighten the noose on their gullible sheep..
    remember the secret bohemian grove meetings and g7-8-9-10 -100 or whatever number are all done in secret for a reason , not bc they care and worry about their ppl or nations , its in the cabal game of thrones for exploitation of resource rich and poorer nations for them to plunder , steal and exploit ..to them its a game of power and greed..

    this all bulls ..

  2. The EU and the rest of the world with the exception of tyrants Israel and the U.S., must now acknowledge, as a result of these outlaw actions by Israel lover Trump, that neither the U.S. nor Israel have any credibility whatsoever period. They must be boycotted in every way, shape or form no matter the consequences. Do not sell to them or buy from them anything. Get rid of the U.S. Petro Dollar which is about worthless anyway. Create a new world banking system and exclude the criminals Israel and the U.S. The longer the world waits, the worse it will be to accomplish these goals which must be done to save your countries from destruction from these criminal countries U.S. and Israel. Israel did 9/11/01 with the aid of Bush, Cheney and the traitorous four star generals who stood down and did not lift a finger to defend the U.S. that day. All should be sitting in a jail cell for life.

      Quote:
      • “Larry Silverstein – is a Jewish American businessman from New York. Silverstein obtained a 99 year lease on the entire world trade center complex on 24 July, 2001. [3] The towers were in fact close to worthless, being filled with asbestos, [4] yet Silverstein “felt a compelling urge to own them”. Silverstein had breakfast in “Windows on the World” restaurant (located in North Tower 107th Floor) every morning. [5] but broke this routine on the morning of 11 September 2001. Silverstein’s two children, who also worked in the WTC, were also absent from work that day. Larry Silverstein was paid a little over $4.5 Billion in insurance money as a result of the destruction of the WTC complex. [6] Silverstein was on personal friendship terms with Zionist media-magnate Rupert Murdoch, former Israeli president Ariel Sharon, as well as Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu. Silverstein was such good friends with Netanyahu that, according to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz he would speak with him on the phone every sunday. [7]
