Italy to push Iran trade ties, undaunted by Trump
Italy's industry minister pledged on Tuesday to support business deals with Iran potentially worth billions of dollars, undeterred by fears US President-elect Donald Trump could put slowly thawing international relations back on ice.

 

Iran re-joined the global trading system in January after a multilateral deal between world powers, and Italian firms eagerly started
drawing up commercial agreements.

 

Trump has raised the prospect the United States could pull out of the pact, which lifted many sanctions in exchange for limiting the Islamic Republic's nuclear ambitions, leaving European diplomats fearing the change of leadership at the White House could thwart growing trade.
