Top EU Diplomat Adopts Defiant Stance In Attempt To Save Iran Nuclear Deal

Michael Birnbaum, The Washington Post Published 5:32 pm, Tuesday, May 15, 2018

BRUSSELS - The European Union's chief diplomat took a defiant stance Tuesday after meeting with Iran's foreign minister and other top European diplomats to try to salvage the Iran nuclear deal following President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw the United States.

Federica Mogherini, who negotiated the deal on behalf of the European Union, listed a string of proposals that taken together may not be enough to convince Iran's leaders to hold to the deal but probably will be seen in Washington as a raised fist against U.S. policy.

The Trump administration has announced that it will be reimposing sanctions on Iran and is seeking to prevent companies around the world from doing business there.

Comparing the 2015 nuclear agreement to "a relative in intensive care," Mogherini said ideas under consideration include plans to deepen Europe's economic relationship with Iran, shield banking transactions with Tehran, keep purchasing Iranian oil and gas, and use EU financing for investments there.

5. Just like pre Iraq bullshit, multiple sources my ass. Israeli sources hauling out some

old tired documents that have been known for years.

Most of the real world laugh at your BiBi once again with his grade school level theatrics.
