The US government is monitoring Europe’s efforts to establish a money payment mechanism to ease business with Iran and any action to evade Iran sanctions will be responded by Washington with fines and penalties, AP reported.

A senior US official told AP on condition of anonymity that " the U.S. will fully enforce its sanctions and hold individuals and entities accountable for undermining them.”

Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark said earlier it is up to EU “whether to do business with Iran or the United States.”

US president Donal trump withdrew from Iran Nuclear deal in May 2018 and impose financial sanctions on Islamic Republic.
