Europe and U.S Dealings With Iran

Trying to convey complex political information to the masses can be difficult but in the N.Y Times article "Europe Resists U.S Push to Curb Iran Ties" did so very effectively. It talked about Europe's commercial and economic ties with Iran, including the historical relations between the two countries. At the end they also mention that the European Commission will meet later this month to discuss bank transactions for Iranian companies so that tells us that there will be follow-up on this story. The article effectively transitioned between talking about European/Iranian relations, U.S/Iranian relations, and U.S/European relations as well as financial and oil issues at stake. The article could have been better by putting in more quotes and using attributions other than "said an American/European official." But it covered a wide range of issues dealing with this topic without oversimplifying too much yet still making it readable.
