Iran: EU, Tehran defy US sanctions with agricultural MoU

The European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development Phil Hogan met with the Head of the Iranian Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture Gholamhossein Shafei in Tehran, Monday. The meeting of the European economic team with Iranian officials comes amid recently introduced US sanctions which, however, did not prevent the delegations from signing a Memorandum of... Еще Understanding (MoU) to foster collaboration in the field of agriculture between the regions. In October, US administration under President Donald Trump moved away from European allies, Russia and China by refusing to re-certify Iran's compliance with the deal, reached during former President Barack Obama's administration. Under the deal, some international sanctions on Iran were revoked in exchange for Tehran curbing nuclear activity.
