Denmark will join the initiative together with Belgium, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway and Sweden.
- Atomaftalen rests on two legs - international scrutiny of the iranian nuclear programme on the one hand, and sanktionsløftelse and trade with Iran, on the other hand.
The Danish minister of foreign affairs stresses that he is concerned about Iran's violations of atomaftalen.
- I would like to stress that we are extremely concerned about the iranian violations of the atomaftalens provisions. We've teamed up with the european UNION have repeatedly called on Iran to full compliance, says Kofod.
the Parliament should not approve of Denmark's commitment to the initiative.
the UNITED states withdrew last year out of the international atomaftale with Iran. Instead of re-imposing president Donald Trump tough economic sanctions against the country. They prevent, among other, european companies can trade with or settle down in Iran.
