EU tries to ensure US commitment to Iran deal

Posted on: 22/03/2018

The UK, France and Germany have proposed new EU sanctions on Iran over its ballistic missile programme and Syria, to try to ensure that the US continues its commitment to the Iran nuclear deal (JCPOA). EU Foreign Ministers discussed the proposal in Brussels 19th March 2018.

On 12 January 2018, US President Trump had agreed a waiver to suspend sanctions on Iran as part of the JCPOA and said that it would be the “last time” he did so unless there was an agreement with the EU  to “fix the deal’s disastrous flaws”. President Trump will next determine whether to waive sanctions on 12 May 2018.
