EU Leaders to Discuss the US Sanctions on Iran in Sofia

The Times

European Union leaders at a summit in Sofia are expected to discuss measures that the bloc might take to shield European companies from renewed US sanctions on Iran, Radio Free Europe.

EU foreign-policy chief Federica Mogherini said on May 15 that European commissioners will first discuss whether the EU's 1990s-era sanctions-blocking measures can be used to protect European business interests in Iran before leaders at the summit take up the matter.

"We are working on finding a practical solution," she told a news conference in Brussels. "We are talking about solutions to keep the deal alive" now that the United States has walked away from Iran's 2015 nuclear agreement with world powers.

"I cannot talk about legal or economic guarantees but I can talk about serious, determined, immediate work from the European side," Mogherini said.
