From the EU site:
The Iranian nuclear deal reached last July is already bringing concrete results, High Representative Federica Mogherini said on Thursday evening in New York.Win-win! No one loses!
“I can share that we have seen this year, since the beginning of the year, an increase of 43% of trade between the EU and Iran compared to last year; that several European banks have started to facilitate transactions with Iranian banks. And we have seen an increase, greater than expected, in oil sales to European countries, where Iran has almost reached its pre-sanctions rate of 4 million barrels per day",. Mogherini said.
The High Representative put the success of the deal down to the “political will, determination, commitment” of the countries involved not just to find an agreement, but to ensure its implementation.
She expressed the hope that the success of the JCPOA would have a positive knock-on effect on other issues.
“We all reaffirmed very strongly the political importance, the historic political importance of this agreement that has shown to the world and to ourselves, that even the most difficult issues can be solved through dialogue and diplomacy and with a win-win approach, overcoming the zero-sum game approach that sometimes blocks us in some of our talks and some of our negotiations.
“We all believe that the good results of this agreement can help solving other crises,” Mogherini concluded.
Well, except for the nation that Iran is aiming its new missiles at...
A senior commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says Iran is in possession of missiles with a range enough to reach Israel.But who cares about them when the EU is making so much money!
“We do not need missiles with a range of over 2,000 kilometers. The longest range required for [Iran’s] missiles is the [Israeli] occupied lands,” Commander of the IRGC’s Aerospace Division Brigadier General Amirali Hajizadeh told reporters on Tuesday, adding that Iran has already the necessary missiles for this purpose.
Iran is a country capable of producing missiles, the IRGC commander said, adding, “The Zionist regime is our biggest target.”
