“Mindful of the urgency and the need for tangible results, the participants welcomed practical proposals to maintain and develop payment channels, notably the initiative to establish a special purpose vehicle to facilitate payments related to Iran’s exports, including oil,” said European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini. So the EU thinks that there is some “urgency” to “maintain and develop payment channels,” i.e., to keep European money flowing into Iran. Why are Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia so eager to fund Iran’s nuclear program and violent repression of its own people? These short-sighted and venal states deserve the condemnation of all free people for this, and if the Iranian mullahs succeed in firing off nuclear weapons against Israel or anyone else, the blood will be on their hands.
“Major powers, Iran agree to keep trying to maintain trade,” Reuters, September 25, 2018 (thanks to Mark):
The remaining parties to the Iran nuclear deal said on Monday they agreed to continue work to create a special mechanism to maintain trade with Iran, including in oil, following the US withdrawal from the 2015 pact.
“Mindful of the urgency and the need for tangible results, the participants welcomed practical proposals to maintain and develop payment channels, notably the initiative to establish a special purpose vehicle to facilitate payments related to Iran’s exports, including oil,” European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini told reporters after a meeting of senior officials from Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and Iran.
