Rouhani: Europe takes big step to save JCPOA

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani praised Europe for taking a “big step” toward maintaining business with Iran after the unilateral U.S. withdrawal from a 2015 nuclear deal and re-imposition of new sanctions on the Islamic Republic.

"To maintain financial and monetary relations in Iran, Europe has formed a special body... Europe has taken a big step," Tasnim cited Rouhani as saying.

The Iranian President also said the Trump administration was "extremely angry" with Europe’s decision, Reuters reported.

The World Court ordered the United States today to ensure that sanctions against Iran do not impact humanitarian aid or civil aviation safety.
