Merkel and Macron vow to save Iran nuclear agreement

Meanwhile, the USA treasury has already imposed new sanctions on the governor of the Iranian central bank, Valiollah Seif, and the Iraq-based Al-Bilad Islamic Bank -for allegedly moving millions of dollars to Hezbollah on behalf of Iran's Revolutionary Guards.

The United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres (confirmed socialist) on Wednesday threw his weight behind the European Union (EU) in salvaging the landmark Iran nuclear deal.

French President Emmanuel Macron said the bloc was working to keep the existing agreement alive "so that our businesses can remain" in Iran.

An EU source said after the talks the leaders agreed to start "work to protect European companies negatively affected by the US decision".

"International companies with interests in many countries make their own choices according to their own interests", he said.

European countries are committed to guaranteeing the interests of European businesses in Iran after USA sanctions are imposed, Zaharieva said.

The company added that it will not be able to continue operations unless it is given a project waiver by U.S. authorities, with the support of French and European authorities.
