COPENHAGEN – Containervervoerder A. P. Møller-Maersk expects the activities in Iran must cease. “With the sanctions that the Americans are going to impose, you can’t do business in Iran, if you also do business in the United States,” said ceo Søren Skou at Reuters news agency. “And we do that on a large scale.”
The American president Donald Trump announced this month that the US withdraw from the atoomdeal with Iran. That agreement made for a lot of companies the way to do business in the islamic republic. It saw the lifting of sanctions in exchange for the links of the Iranian nuclear program.
The US want sanctions new life. That is a sensitive issue in Europe. The French president Emmanuel Macron said Thursday that the EU should take measures to European companies that do business with Iran to protect against U.s. sanctions.
