Belgium did not rule out new measures to protect EU companies from sanctions on Iran
The head of the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Didier Reinders did not rule out that new proposals in the sphere of regulation could be developed in the framework of protective European measures in connection with possible US sanctions on Iran.

Last week, the European Commission released a plan of protective measures against possible US sanctions on Iran, launching the procedure for updating the 1996 law, designed to block the extraterritorial effects of new restrictive measures for European companies.

"We have several opportunities to continue to work with Iran on the HPSP, of course, first of all, this is calling on Iran to implement the agreement," said Reinders, speaking at a conference in Brussels on Tuesday, also pointing out the support measures proposed by the European Commission from the European Investment Bank bank activities of European companies in Iran.

"We are simply trying to organize a set of protective measures, perhaps use the old regulation, we can organize new regulation, we'll see," he added, noting that the main decision remains for the European companies themselves.

US President Donald Trump announced on May 8 that Washington is withdrawing from an agreement with Iran on the nuclear program reached by the six international mediators (Russia, the United States, Britain, China, France, Germany) in 2015. Trump also announced the restoration of all sanctions, including secondary ones (in relation to other countries that conduct business with Iran), whose actions were suspended as a result of the deal reached.
