United States can't be 'economic policeman of the planet', France says

United States can't be 'economic policeman of the planet', France says

"We made the choice to build peace and stability in the Middle East", he said in an allusion to the involvement of France, Germany and Britain in the Iran deal, from which President Donald Trump withdrew the USA on Tuesday.

Merkel's conservative hardliners, both in the CDU and the Bavarian CSU, are reluctant to accept a eurozone finance minister, managing a "federal budget", mostly paid for by German taxpayers.

Merkel condemned the rocket attack on Israeli positions during the conversation with Rouhani, her office said in a statement, "and called on Iran to contribute to deescalation in the region".

Merkel stated that Germany, together with France and the United Kingdom will continue to fulfil the commitments undertaken in the framework of the signed in 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran.

Her latest comments came shortly after a visit to the White House last month, when differences with Trump on several policy areas were very apparent. This renewal of United States sanctions will potentially have an immediate impact on all countries purchasing oil from Iran, and particularly on countries with financial institutions that have transactions with Iranian banks, since they will be cut off from doing business with the American economy.

President Macron is in Germany to receive the Charlemagne Prize in Aachen, but also in the aftermath of President Trump's withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal. "The German government and the EU are called on to protect EU-Iranian trade and to restore the confidence that has been lost", it said.

He emphasized that German engineering exports to Iran had grown by around 21 percent to 901 million euros (1.07 billion US dollars) in 2017.

Joe added, "These two character (Banner and Hulk) are constantly in conflict with each other over control". Helmed by returning directors Anthony and Joe Russo, Avengers 4 is due to hit theaters on May 5, 2019.

One hope is that the Trump administration's foreign policy will serve as the glue binding together countries with similar interests in, say, dealing with Vladimir Putin's Russian Federation or tacking stability challenges in the Middle East. "After all, European companies in the real economy are already threatened with fines in the United States if their Iranian business partners are on U.S. sanctions lists".

Macron is only now realizing that the two parties in the German governing coalition are weak, and that "they can even be seen as the [October election's] main losers", said a European diplomat.

"But that too will only limit slightly the chaos that we are now expecting", BGA President Holger Bingmann said. However, all failed to reach an agreement with the US President.

Reacting to the announcement by Trump, Volker Treier, worldwide trade expert at the German Chambers of Industry and Trade (DIHK), expressed concern that the departure of the United States from the deal could harm economic relations between Germany and Iran by increasing uncertainty for businesses.

The VDMA mechanical engineering industry association said the ball was now in Iran's court.

"This resolution remains the binding global legal framework for the resolution of the dispute about the Iranian nuclear programme".

"As long as the European Union does not reactivate its sanctions on Iran, German business can continue legally to do business with Iran", he said.
