U.S. Threatens Europe With Car Tariffs Over Iran’s Nuclear Efforts


The Trump government has threatened to hit European car imports with a 25 percent tariff if Britain, France, and Germany don’t formally accuse Iran of breaking its 2015 nuclear deal, The Washington Post reports.

But , such tariffs are not likely to be executed as the three European nations at the center of this problem have already begun to media Iran.

On Tuesday, Britain, France, and Germany triggered a dispute mechanism under the nuclear deal to enforce the arrangement requiring Iran to curtail its nuclear program. Al Jazeera reports that the dispute mechanism numbers to a formal accusation against Tehran it broke the conditions of the offer. It is understood that the states had signaled a goal to trigger the dispute mechanism for weeks, long before the Trump government made the tariff threat.

The U.S. itself withdrew from the nuclear deal back in 2018. Washington said it did so as part of a plan to force Iran back to the negotiating table to iron out a new deal.

Iran has denied its nuclear program is geared toward building a bomb but has since slowly rolled back its responsibilities under the deal since the U.S. withdrawal.
