“We will be looking at a package of measures that we may be able to devise as Europeans to encourage the Iranians to stay in the deal,” he told reporters. “One of the key things we will be talking about ... we will be looking at all the ways that we can come up with to protect legitimate UK and European business who may want to trade with Iran.”
