National SecurityÂ Advisor John Bolton told CNN’s Jake Tapper than Europe will see standing with the U.S against Iran is in their best interestÂ and didn’t rule out sanctionsÂ on European companies that don’t comply.
Bolton said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that he believes some European countries will end up supporting the United StatesÂ despite comments from European leadersÂ that they regret Trump’s decision to withdraw.
“I think the Europeans will see that’s in their interest ultimately to go along with this,” he said.
But Bolton didn’t rule out sanctions for European companies doing business with Iran.
“It’s possible,” Bolton said. “It depends on the conduct of other governments.”
