Time to Test EU Capacity, Capability and Credibility

The fate of the Iran nuclear deal will determine once and for all whether the European Union is able to act independently from the United States and maintain normal economic relations with Tehran, says a former diplomat who believes the Europeans have several options to circumvent US sanctions.
"It is indeed a big moment in EU-Iran relations because…always there has been a big question in Iran as to whether Europe is independent from the US. Whether Iran can have a separate, independent and cordial relationship with the European Union or not," Seyed Hossein Mousavian, a former spokesperson of the nuclear talks, said in a BBC Hardtalk program, according to a transcript of his remarks.
President Donald Trump announced on May 8 that he will pull Washington out of the nuclear agreement and reimpose US sanctions on Tehran.  
Under the accord, Iran agreed to curb its nuclear program in return for relief from international sanctions.
