Germany Says Checking How to Protect Companies Affected by Iran Sanctions

A German government spokesman said Berlin is exploring ways to protect companies affected by sanctions reimposed on Iran by Washington by enabling legal business relations with Tehran.

“We are assessing how we will be able to protect the basis of our business engagements there,” government spokesman Steffen Seibert said, Reuters reported on Monday.

The US government imposed a new round of sanctions on Iran on November 4.

On May 8, the US president pulled his country out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the nuclear deal that was achieved in Vienna in 2015 after years of negotiations among Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany).

The US had announced plans to drive Iran’s oil exports down to zero, but backed off from its policy and granted waivers to at least 8 countries that import Iranian oil.
