The European Union is not doing enough to preserve the benefits for Iran from the 2015 international nuclear pact following the withdrawal of the United States, Iran's foreign minister told the EU's energy chief Sunday. Miguel Arias Canete, European commissioner for energy and climate, said Tehran wanted the 28-nation bloc to act fast to preserve its oil trade with Iran and to consider making direct euro-denominated payments for Iranian oil to Iran's central bank, bypassing the U.S. financial system.The options being considered by the EU to keep Iran in the deal include new credit lines for Tehran, increased energy cooperation and implementing EU laws to block European companies from caving in to U.S. sanctions.
