Iran’s nuclear chief says progress in efforts by the European Union to facilitate trade with the country despite US sanctions would be an “encouraging” sign that can help keep the trust between Tehran and Europe alive. 
“I hope that they will take this step because this is an encouragement and will help keep the trust that we worked so hard to build between the two sides. Otherwise, we will be losing the trust and once the trust is lost, everybody will be a loser,” Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, told IRNA in remarks delivered in English, which were published on Sunday. 
The European Commission has said it is seeking to launch “very soon” a special purpose vehicle to help European companies bypass renewed US sanctions on Tehran, with three European diplomats saying the official unveiling could come as early as Monday.
