EU preparing workaround for Iran sanctions - Trump promises to help Chinese telecoms firm TZE - Farm subsidies threatened as EU thrashes out budget
US Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell has welcomed German companies' decision to comply with US sanctions and stop business with Iran. Washington warned firms that trade with Iran that they could face repercussions.
China has demanded Canada release Meng Wanzhou, the daughter of Huawei's founder, who faces possible extradition to the US. The tech firm is being investigated for suspected violations of US sanctions on Iran.
The US ambassador to Berlin, Richard Grenell, has sent threatening letters to German companies working on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, according to a German newspaper. Grenell reportedly warns of possible sanctions.
The arrest of the chief financial officer of Huawei, Meng Wanzhou, will only exacerbate tensions in the US-China trade spat. But she and her firm should be presumed innocent until proven guilty, says DW's Frank Sieren.
