The French foreign minister has called for the creation of mechanisms other than the dollar to help firms doing business with Iran after the US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal. Jean-Yves Le Drian stresses that such mechanisms help Tehran export its oil. He says the EU has already made progress to protect the bloc’s companies from U-S sanctions on Iran. U-S President, Donald Trump, announced Washington’s pullout from the nuclear deal in May. He pledged to reinstate nuclear sanctions on Tehran and impose what he called the highest level of economic bans on the Islamic Republic. Tehran says it only stays in the deal if the remaining signatories to the agreement give guarantees that the accord benefits Iran economically.
