La UE se prepara para sanciones secundarias de EUA

Graphic News

May 11, 2018 -- Empresas de la UE enfrentan sanciones secundarias de la Casa Blanca sobre pactos comerciales con Irán. Las sanciones secundarias apartan a las firmas extranjeras del sistema financiero de EUA, convirtiéndolas en socias comerciales no atractivas.

European oil and gas, aviation, automotive, railways, banking and healthcare industries all jumped to sign deals in Iran. The most significant agreements Iran signed with foreign companies included commercial aircraft to modernise its ageing fleet.

Boeing planned to sell 80 jets to Iran Air. The first aircraft was due to be delivered this year. Boeing had also agreed to sell 30 737 MAX aeroplanes to Aseman Airlines, another Iranian carrier.

European rival Airbus, which has a plant in Alabama, had agreed to sell 100 aircraft, worth $19 billion, to Iran. U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Tuesday told reporters that he would revoke licenses for Boeing and Airbus to export commercial planes, related parts and services to Iran after a 90-day period.

French oil giant Total signed a $5 billion contract with the National Iranian Oil Company in July 2017 for the development and production of phase 11 of South Pars, the world's largest gas field. Now its stake in the project will probably be taken over by its Chinese partner, CNPC -- Beijing, unlike Paris, is willing to challenge president Trump.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
