MESOPOTAMIA NEWS : HEUTIGE EMPFEHLUNG = LESEN ! LESEN ! Iraner gegen die Diktatur – von Saba Farzan – Schlaglichter
Die Protestbewegung weitet sich aus
Den heimischen Apologeten der iranischen Diktatur kann es niemand recht machen. Als vor fast einem Jahrzehnt die grüne Revolution in Teheran ihren Anfang nahm und sich kontinuierlich in weitere Städte ausbreitete, meinten die Relativierer, dass es ja »nur« eine urbane Bewegung sei und lediglich iranische Akademiker demonstrieren würden. Als dann Ende des vergangenen Jahres die ersten Proteste in anderen Landesteilen begannen und sich die Proteste langsam aber stetig ihren Weg in die Hauptstadt bahnten, hieß es, dies sei ja »nur« die Landbevölkerung.
MESOPOTAMIA NEWS : THE ULTIMATE LIST / CONSQUENCES FOR EUROPE AFTER TRUMPS IRAN DECISION / FROM RENAULT TO DAIMLER BENZ
European losers in new Iranian sanctions game
By AFP 5 August 2018 – PARIS, France – US President Donald Trump’s decision to pull the United States out of the 2015 nuclear accord with Iran and reimpose a raft of sanctions will hit European businesses working in Iran. Here is an overview of how firms stand to be affected when the sanctions kick in Monday:
French automakers Renault and PSA have taken different approaches publicly.
PSA, behind the Peugeot, Citroen and Opel brands, said in June it was preparing to suspend activities in the Islamic republic, its chief foreign market by volume, noting those units account for “less than one percent of sales”.
The group, which is Europe’s second biggest carmaker, last year sold more than 445,000 vehicles in Iran, making the country one of its biggest markets outside France.
Renault says it intends to keep up activities in Iran albeit scaling them back. On July 16, the automaker announced a 10.3 percent drop in sales in Iran to 61,354 units.
Germany’s Daimler was teaming up with two Iranian firms to assemble Mercedes-Benz trucks.
Volkswagen also said last year it would seek to resume sales in Iran for the first time in 17 years, yet the scale of its US activities could force the jettisoning of those plans.German firms’ business with Iran was a modest $2.6 billion of 2016 exports rising to $3 billion last year.Italy is Iran’s main European trading partner – but Germany is still the bloc’s biggest exporter to Tehran.
