Iran says it's cutting oil exports to France, Britain

| No Comments

This articles discusses the current conflict surrounding Iran and the European Union. Essentially, the EU has declared that as of July 1st they will no longer be importing oil from the middle eastern nation because of the country's rising nuclear program that the EU, along with the rest of the west, considers to be a threat. Iran however claims that it is researching nuclear power strictly for a better understanding of its capabilities rather than for an attack against Israel. The ban is seen mostly as a symbolic sanction and it remains unclear as to why France and Britain were singled out. The argument basically comes down to a misunderstanding about the perceived intentions that Iran has for its nuclear program. Rational thought would dictate that based on the current regime, Iran is not much of a threat to use nuclear weapons against another nation and should be treated as a trade partner for the rest of the world
