First, the article cites “deepening divisions” between Trump & Europe.
That is just scratching the surface.
Here is something interesting to debunk that claim:
“The EU is preparing a special mechanism to enable payments for Iranian oil and other exports without U.S. dollars, possibly through a barter system.”
Here’s a thread debunking that “special mechanism,” known as the “special purpose vehicle.”
And here’s @PHREUTERS admitting something interesting:
All of this has “not dissuaded foreign businesses ranging from oil majors to trading houses and shipping concerns from pulling out of Iran for fear of incurring new U.S. penalties.”
Of course, @PHREUTERS refuses to explain how Tehran is exactly using the Iranian people’s money currently & why 80% of the country lives in poverty.
Conclusion? Yours to make.
Thanks for reading!
I leave you with this question:
Should the U.S. continue its firm policy vis-à-vis #Iran’s regime?
