As the first batch of re-imposed US sanctions on Iran takes effect, the EU’s updated Blocking Statute enters into force tomorrow to mitigate their impact on the interests of EU companies doing legitimate business in Iran.
Joint statement by High Representative Federica Mogherini and Foreign Ministers of E3 (Jean-Yves Le Drian of France, Heiko Maas of Germany, Jeremy Hunt of the United Kingdom) on the re-imposition of US sanctions due to its withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)
The European Union remains committed to support the full and effective implementation of the nuclear deal, said High Representative Federica Mogherini following an EU/E3 and Iran meeting today on the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) attended by the Foreign Ministers of France, Germany, United Kingdom and Iran.
The EU today adopted new sanctions in response to North Korea's missile programme, aiming to pressure Pyongyang into dialogue aiming at peaceful, verifiable denuclearisation. The sanctions complement and reinforce the UN Security Council sanctions, and take effect immediately.
