Poland Set to Take Flack as US Voice to EU Over withdrawal from Iranian Deal
Poland has stepped forward as the voice within the European Union for the American withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal. Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Tuesday that his country would serve in an informal capacity to explain the position of the Trump administration to EU member states and the EU concerns to Washington. Poland’s position on the deal itself is not exactly clear having been part of the apparent EU unanimity on continuing the agreement but at the same time saying it “understands” the American position. Tension between the US and EU continues to grow as the European Commission works toward a law forbidding member-states from honoring any American sanction applied to Iran. Likewise, US sanctions will not be enforceable in European courts.
