Europe worried as US re-imposes Iran sanctions: US media

Tehran, The European authorities are worried about the consequences of the re-imposition of the US sanctions on Iran, wrote the Associated Press.

'As the Trump administration readies to re-impose sanctions on Iran that were lifted under the 2015 nuclear accord, America's European allies fear greater regional instability,' wrote AP on Sunday.

AP added that European countries say they remain committed to the agreement, seeing it as the surest way to safeguard their national security.

'We remain firmly committed to ensuring (the deal) is upheld and we continue to abide by our commitments, the second European diplomat said. If we cannot fulfill these, it will risk Iran's deciding that it no longer has to abide by the restrictions.

On May 8, affronting the UN Security Council, the EU, Britain, Russia, China, Germany, France, and the whole world that have supported the landmark Iran Deal, US President Donald Trump decided to pull out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which was the fruit of 12 years of strenuous efforts and talks.

Oil sanction is part of Trump's plan to pressure Iran to give more concessions than what were agreed upon in the JCPOA.
