Washington Post: Trump threatened car tariffs if the EU did not blame Iran

The administration of US President Donald Trump recently threatened Europe with the introduction of a 25 percent duty on imports of European cars into the United States unless it formally accuses Iran of violating the international agreement on Iran’s nuclear program.

On Wednesday, The daily reported on this, referring to European sources
Washington Post with the fact that after a few days France, Britain and
Germany has indeed lodged a complaint against Tehran for non-compliance
obligations under the agreement.

An agreement in which Tehran has committed itself to curtailing its nuclear program
in exchange for lifting the sanctions, signed in 2015 with Iran six
world powers – Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the USA.
The purpose was to slow down Iran ‘s nuclear program, and thus prevent Tehran from
development of nuclear weapons, but to enable it to make peaceful uses of nuclear weapons

In 2018, Trump called the deal ineffective and announced that the United States would withdraw it
they resign. Subsequently, Tehran gradually ceased to meet certain conditions
agreement and earlier this month in response to the assassination of his general Kasam
Solomon told the Americans that he would no longer follow the set
limits for uranium enrichment.

On Tuesday, France, Britain and Germany took the opportunity provided by the agreement
offers, and lodged a complaint with Tehran for breach of its obligations
resulting from this document. According to the trio, the aim of the complaint is
European countries to rescue the agreement and resume the debate with the Iranians, which
would allow Tehran to reconsider some of its past decisions.

Tehran sees the move of European countries as a strategic mistake, and neither does Russia
does not consider a complaint a good choice.

Trump government officials have called, according to The Washington Post
to lodge the said complaint, which may lead to the renewal of sanctions
UN against Iran. According to the newspaper, the British, French and Germans were a threat to customs
shocked. According to The Washington Post, a European representative likened it
US efforts to pursue European foreign policy through customs pressure
for blackmail.

The daily noted that this approach is getting tough new tactics
the level that America holds towards its oldest allies, and
underlines the extreme confusion in transatlantic relations.

The nuclear agreement assumes that in case of suspected violation
signatories may complain to the Joint Commission in which they meet
representatives of Iran, Russia, China, the three European powers and the EU.

If the disagreement is not resolved by the disagreement, the matter shall be referred to the Security Council
UN. If even that dispute is not resolved within 30 days, they will re-enter into force
UN sanctions on Iran initially relaxed by the agreement.

However, according to France, Germany and Britain, the complaint should not be directed
to renew the sanctions imposed by the UN, but, conversely, to save the agreement.
