US President Donald Trump threatened Great Britain, France, and Germany to impose 25% import duties on cars unless European countries accuse Iran of violating the Joint Comprehensive Action Plan (JCPA) for its nuclear program
This was previously reported by The Washington Post, and now this information was confirmed by the Minister of Defense of Germany Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer. “There is such a threat,” she said at a press conference in London in response to a request for comment on Wednesday’s The Washington Post, which cited sources about Trump’s pressure on European partners. About this writes the Agence France-Presse (AFP), citing a statement by the Minister, which refers to TASS.
According to The Washington Post, a warning about the possibility of introducing duties on automobiles was made a week before the said countries launched a dispute resolution mechanism for a nuclear deal on January 14. One of the newspaper’s sources called this move by the US “extortion”.
