PARIS (Reuters) - France and its European allies will work hard to safeguard the interests of their businesses in Iran, a source in the French presidency said on Wednesday, after the United States said it was reimposing strict sanctions on Tehran.
“We will obviously do everything, in conjunction with our businesses, to protect their interests,” the source said.
