Iran supplies medical supplies to circumvent US sanctions

Britain, France, and Germany have activated the trade mechanism created after the US withdrew from the nuclear agreement.

Germany, Britain, and France have organized the export of medical goods to Iran, for the first time using a mechanism created to circumvent US sanctions, Berlin said on Tuesday.

The German Foreign Ministry did not specify what kind of medical supplies were involved or which companies were involved.

The Agency says that now that the system has been successfully tested and that the parties will work on further transactions.

Recall that in 2015, Iran and five world powers signed an agreement limiting the Iranian nuclear program in exchange for easing sanctions.

After the US withdrew from the agreement and reinstated sanctions, Iran began insisting that European countries that signed the agreement help it circumvent the sanctions.

Among the measures of pressure exerted by Iran in this direction is the departure of Tehran from compliance with a number of its obligations under the nuclear agreement, including restrictions on uranium enrichment.
