French Companies Have Suspended Operations in Iran – Quai d’Orsay

French Foreign Ministry said today the French businesses operating in Iran have all stopped their operations in the country ahead of the EU sanctions that will go into full effect on 1 July.

The automotive news site just-auto also reported that PSA Peugeot Citroen has suspended its operations in Iran. The French auto manufacturer is the second largest European automaker and had extensive business dealings with Iran’s largest automaker Iran Khodro (IKCO). Peugeot supplied components to IKCO for its bestselling brand Samand that is built on 405 platform. The company also assembles popular 205 and 405 models inside Iran.

For years the West has cooperated with this theocracy and preserved its very existence,that includes Israel.Meanwhile the regime pretended it stood up against the West with their "Death to America and Israel"propaganda.
The sad fact is it was the west (France)that brought that illiterate and spiteful old Iran hater back to Iran in an Air France 747 Jumbo and were also proud of it.
This ridiculous theocracy was put in power by the oil cartel and helped by some of the misguided people of our nation.They the oil cartel and Russia benefit from regimes tantrums meanwhile the Iranian nation wished they never committed the Jim Jones style mass suicide which has caused Iran no end to its pitiful plight.
But there is light at the end of the tunnel because the nation has seen through these liars for what they are criminals.And criminals belong in one place only in an Iranian jail waiting to be prosecuted according to the crimes they have committed against the secular Iranian nation.

Iran will sell oil to itself because it is independent so to hell to the whole world.

It's funny how when the French leave, the cars that Iran Khodro build become second class cars.
You people are hilarious.

They (Iran and France) were not cooperating , they (French)were cashing in on the licences.

Now Iran can build the parts they were forced to buy due to licence agreements by themselves.

Come on guys so naive and simplistic mentalities are not becoming of an Iranian.
