Poland Supporting US Sanctions

Poland Supporting US SanctionsPoland Supporting US Sanctions

The Polish foreign minister says his country opposes any European Union actions that would weaken US sanctions against Iran. Poland on Monday said that it opposes any European Union actions that would weaken US sanctions against Iran, as the EU continues to look for ways to preserve the deal, AP reported. The comments by Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz came following a meeting of EU foreign ministers to discuss ways of preserving the deal. Czaputowicz said that if European companies operating in Iran were to suffer losses, a mechanism needed to be found to compensate them. He also said encouraging the continued operation of European companies in Iran could weaken US sanctions, and this could become be a big problem. He said those “states that tie their security to United States security” shared views similar to Poland’s given their interest in preserving their trans-Atlantic relationship. Czaputowicz’s remarks on Monday follow a report last week saying that Polish leaders are planning to defend the US government’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal within the EU.
