France Delivers ASTONISHING Warning: ‘We Will NOT Let USA be Policeman of the World’

  • France Delivers ASTONISHING Warning: ‘We Will NOT Let USA be Policeman of the World’
    by JAMES BICKERTON, https://www.express.co.uk/
    A SENIOR French government Minister has claimed Europe won’t allow the US to become “trade policeman of the world” in a dramatic outburst as he argued Europe should defy President Trump over Iran sanctions.

    The comments were made by Bruno Le Maire, French economy minister, during an interview with the Financial Times. He claimed: “Europe refuses to allow the US to be the trade policeman of the world.” President Trump pulled the US out of the nuclear deal Mr Obama signed with Iran in 2015 and has reimposed a range of economic sanctions. 

    He has repeatedly threatened punitive action against any European companies which ignore these sanctions and continue doing business with Iran. Mr Le Maire argued the US measures threaten the EU’s “economic sovereignty” and urged the bloc to “affirm our independence”.

    He added European countries will push ahead with plans to create a new financial channel to bypass US sanctions on Iran, allowing European firms to continue their current trading with the state.
