New Zealand: Mogherini encourages EU to defy Trump on Iran trade

High Representative of the European Union Federica Mogherini said the EU will be encouraging business with Iran as part of the nuclear deal during a press conference alongside New Zealand's Foreign Minister Winston Peters in Wellington on Tuesday. On her first visit to New Zealand, Mogherini said that 'if there is an international agreement on nuclear nonproliferation that is delivering, it has... Еще to be maintained' after US President Donald Trump tweeted: «Anyone doing business with Iran will NOT be doing business with the United States. I am asking for WORLD PEACE, nothing less!» «We are encouraging Small and Medium Sized Enterprises in particular to increase business with and in Iran as part of something that, for us, is a security priority,» she said. «I want to make this very clear: we are talking about trade and economic relations with Iran, because this is integral part of the nuclear deal.» She added that since Iran was being compliant the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the deal's signatories should be opening up trade routes and relaxing the economic sanctions currently in place. The US withdrew from the deal in May, with Trump saying: «The Iran deal was a giant fiction that a murderous regime desired only a peaceful nuclear energy programme. Today we have definitive proof that this Iranian promise was a lie.»
