Iran - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (17.09.18)


Q – Are the French and Europeans running the risk of breaking the law by working on ways to bypass the American sanctions against Iran?

A – The French and Europeans are acting in strict compliance with their international and European commitments and in accordance with their national laws.

The commitments made within the framework of the Iran nuclear deal brokered in Vienna (JCPOA) were endorsed by the UN Security Council in its resolution 2231 and therefore apply to all member states. The Europeans are continuing to implement their obligations in this regard.
