With friends like Trump, who needs enemies — European Union chief

Европа решила перейти на американский газ

The EU would seek to open up market access for American industrial products, loosen restrictions on procuring USA goods for public agencies, help usher in reforms to the World Trade Organization, and import more American liquefied natural gas. It is not a joke now. "This is the essence our problem today with our friends on the other side of the Atlantic".

He agreed with the U.S. president that "unpredictability is a useful tool in politics - but only in dealing with an enemy". But only against enemies or opponents.

"I think the real geopolitical problem is not when you have an unpredictable opponent, or enemy or partner", said Tusk. The head of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker said that the us duties can not be justified as actions for national security.

At an EU-Western Balkans summit in Sofia, Bulgaria, leaders settled on several areas where they would be willing accommodate President Donald Trump's administration, on the condition that Washington give Europe's steel and aluminum producers a permanent exemption from tariffs.

Finnish mining technology company Outotec said US sanctions would slow down and complicate its ties with Iran but it was too early to say if it would leave.

This would be a massive blow to the Iranian Regime, who have heralded the 2017 Total deal as a sign that the accord was working in their favour.

He called on the US President not to abandon the practice of multilateral negotiation with regards to issues of common interests, such as Iran or trade politics between regions. Tempers may fray if the U.S. gives no quarter as Europe pushes for waivers to shield its companies from the penalties.

"It's Europe's economic sovereignty, and what we are demanding is that we are exempted without conditions or time limits", French President Emmanuel Macron said in Bulgaria, where European Union leaders have gathered for a summit with Balkans countries.

They also agreed to "initiate work to protect European companies negatively affected by the United States decision", which involves Washington reimposing sanctions on the Iranian nuclear programme. It stipulates that no foreign court judgments based on these laws have any effect in the EU. "We have pledged to take necessary political steps for our companies to stay in Iran".

"We have a few weeks left to save it", he said. "It is the duty of the EU therefore to protect European business and that applies particularly to smaller and medium-size businesses".

The European Union has strongly criticized US President Donald Trump for withdrawal from Iran nuclear deal.

Meanwhile, Iran's oil minister said that Chinese state-owned oil company CNPC was ready to replace Total on a major gas field project in Iran.

Eventually, European countries may have to make a choice between their ally who emphasizes "America First" and the interests of their own companies. "We will continue with our normal and transparent practical cooperation with Iran on the basis of not violating our worldwide obligations", Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said in a regular press briefing on May 9.
