The European Union issued a joint statement on Monday, along with Britain, France, and Germany, that expressed “regret” over the Trump Administration’s decision to reimpose nuclear sanctions against Iran. The statement vowed to protect European companies doing business in Iran.
The US withdrew from the P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran, and has returned its sanctions to 2015 levels. Britain, Germany, and France all remain parties to the peace treaty, and obliged to offer Iran sanctions relief so long as it complies with the deal. The rest of the EU has agreed to support the deal as well.
Though US sanctions are intended to be global, the EU has plans on circumventing them,, and is continuing to work on more ways to facilitate European companies buying from Iran, and providing goods and services to Iran.
Most of this is going to mean going around the international banking system, as US threats have scared most major banks away. The EU has intended to create a clearing house that would allow EU companies to circumvent the banks and trade with Iran without any money leaving the union.

“regret” reminds me of the days of Condi Rice- “unhelpful”
Why on earth are these nations allowing such bullying to rule them?
I suppose it really is because they are not sovereign- the corporations control the globe and do not want to lose any money from their excessive profits.
Western Europe has been a US vassal since the end of WW2. Its leaders pockets are lined with dollars. If money didn’t keep Europe in line the US uses Gladio false flag operations. The US strokes eastern European fear of Russia. They had better wake up soon before the US fights Russia to the last European.
You’re 100% correct, Arius. Western Europe’s been a US vassal since the end of WWII, and its leaders’ pockets are lined with dollars. As you rightly said, if money didn’t keep Europe in line the US used Gladio false flag operations. The US strokes Eastern European fear of Russia, but they’d better wake up soon before Russia fights the last European.
Russia’s a peaceful, Orthodox Christian country, but it’s been producing weaponry that’s at least a decade more advanced than that of the US and NATO, and spending less, to boot. It has a right to defend itself, and that’s why it’s producing weaponry and military equipment (including aircraft, naval vessels, APC’s and tanks) that are far superior to that of the US/NATO.
The US/NATO doesn’t stand a chance in an all-out war with Russia, and they know it .. So, why bait the Russian Bear and risk total destruction?
