National Security Advisor of the United States John Bolton said in an interview with CNN news that after the withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal, the US does not exclude sanctions against EU companies for cooperation with Tehran.

"It's possible," John Bolton said on CNN when asked if the US might hit Europe with sanctions, stating that it depends on the conduct of other governments.

"The rationale for getting out of the deal is it was contrary to American national security interests when we got into it and it hadn't gotten any better with age," National security adviser John Bolton said.

Bolton noted that he hoped the Europeans would see that it was in their best interest to reach an agreement with Washington on Iran.

Europe and France have reportedly discussed with the US the possibility of further exemptions for European companies that could be affected by US economic sanctions on Tehran in order to "defend their economic interests," as a number of French enterprises, including Total, Renault, and Sanofi are operating in Iran.

On May 8, US President Donald Trump announced his decision to withdraw the United States from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), also known as the Iran nuclear deal. He also promised to reinstate the sanctions against Iran that were lifted as a result of the agreement.
