Merkel: EU Businesses Will Be Forced to Leave Iran

telesurtv.net

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that her country will stay in the nuclear deal with Iran following the US decision to pull out, Sputnik News reports.

"As for the Iran deal, it is far from ideal but other options are even less stable," Merkel admitted. "That is why we will continue to respect this agreement," she told reporters in Beijing on Thursday after meeting China's Premier Li Keqiang.

The German chancellor, however, emphasized some EU businesses will be forced to wind down operations in Iran to avoid US sanctions. "Sanctions will likely lead some European companies to pull out of Iran," she told reporters.
