US threatens European companies with sanctions after Iran deal pullout

Donald Trump is prepared to impose sanctions on European companies that do business in Iran following his withdrawal of the US from the international nuclear deal, his administration reiterated on Sunday.

This next bit is especially for Don midwest:

John Bolton, Trump’s national security adviser, predicted that “the Europeans will see that it’s in their interests to come along with us” rather than continue with the 2015 deal, under which major European corporations have signed billions of dollars of contracts in Iran.

Asked on CNN’s State of the Union whether that meant the Trump administration would impose sanctions against those firms, Bolton said: “It’s possible. It depends on the conduct of other governments.”

US sanctions on Iran reimposed following Trump’s withdrawal
not only block American firms from doing business in the country, but also bar foreign firms that do business there from accessing the entire US banking and financial system.

I’m not sure that Europe is going to back down on this.

EU Should Use Iranian Situation To Emboss Euro As A Benchmark Currency

It is not every day that you get an opportunity of a lifetime but when you have it, one should not miss that. The European Union clearly has this at their doorstep and they should thank the president of the United States, Donald Trump, for deciding to pull out of the Iranian nuclear deal.

I think the current situation could make the EU position a lot stronger, and it is an opportunity for France and Germany to play a global role and emboss the euro as an alternative benchmark currency like the U.S. dollar.

And, as you all probably already know, last month:

Iran switches from dollar to euro for official reporting currency

LONDON (Reuters) – Iran will start reporting foreign currency amounts in euros rather than U.S. dollars, state media said on Wednesday as part of the country’s effort to reduce its reliance on the U.S. currency due to political tension with Washington.

The new policy could encourage government bodies and firms linked to the state to increase their use of the euro at the expense of the dollar.

Central bank governor Valiollah Seif said last week that Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei had welcomed his suggestion of replacing the dollar with the euro in foreign trade, as the “dollar has no place in our transactions today”.
