DLF: Iran - EU will Institution zur Umgehung von US-Sanktionen schaffen


Die Europäische Union geht in der Iran-Politik auf Konfrontation zu US-Präsident Trump.

Wie die EU-Außenbeauftragte Mogherini in New York mitteilte, will die EU gemeinsam mit Russland und China eine neue Finanzinstitution gründen. Sie soll es ausländischen Unternehmen ermöglichen, mit dem Iran Handel zu treiben, ohne Strafmaßnahmen der USA fürchten zu müssen...

Meine Meinung: Da bin ich mal gespannt ob das was wird. Wenn ja könnte es eine Struktur werden die es auf Dauer generell erlaubt US-Sanktionen zu unterlaufen, was wiederum einen massiven Verlust von Einfluss der USA nach sich ziehen würde.
