Donald Trump slaps down EU bid to protect firms from sanctions against Iran

Donald Trump has slapped down a bid by the EU to shield European businesses from the impact of new US sanctions against Iran.

The US president wrote in a tweet on Tuesday that new measures taken against the Middle Eastern country have “officially been cast”.

He added: “Anyone doing business with Iran will NOT be doing business with the United States. I am asking for WORLD PEACE, nothing less!”

It comes hours after British Foreign Office minister Alistair Burt sought to calm British businesses by assuring them a “blocking statute” passed by the EU would protect them from the sanctions.
