While European energy giants like Royal Shell and the Italian Eni sPa have already licked their lips at Iran’s reopening markets, many investors are still wary over Iran’s troubled past, Bloomberg reported on Friday.

“Investors who wait months for sanctions to be lifted will then have to gamble that they won’t run afoul of enduring blacklists or the vow by the U.S. and other world powers that sanctions will ‘snap back’ into place if Iran fails to live up to commitments to restrict its nuclear program,” reported Bloomberg.

Compounding their trepidation is how to negotiate the disintegrating sanctions regime as well as Iran’s tumultuous history, Suzanne Maloney, an energy analyst at the Brookings Institution, told Bloomberg. 

Still, officials from countries all over the world have expressed interest in exporting their businesses to Iran, the Middle East’s second largest economy after Turkey. Germany’s foreign and economy ministers have already said they plan to visit Iran, and France’s foreign minister is also planning a trip.

At Security Council Parley on Middle East, US and Israeli UN Envoys Decry Iranian Regional Provocations

The US and Israeli envoys to the UN slammed Iran's rulers at a Wednesday meeting of the Security Council on...

U.S. officials estimate that within six months Iranian oil will flow to international markets and international companies will be able to penetrate the domestic market, investing, trading, insuring and shipping, according to the report.

In the U.S., however, the business situation could run into some hurdles if local or state authorities fail to comply with the Iran deal, or the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

Article 25 of the 159-page document addresses concerns, which Bloomberg suggested mainly resides with European authorities, that the federal government could have to “take the appropriate steps” to ensure local authorities are implementing the JCPoA, or complying with the removal of sanctions against Iran.

    To add insult to injury,
    Upon signing this bogus treaty Iran will receive 50 billion taxpayer dollars for play money to further it’s Middle Eastern terrorist activities!
    The Whole objective is to make huge profits for the weapons merchants by inundating the already war torn region with expensive armaments & stoke the flames even higher!Billions of dollars in war materials will flow into the Middle East.Naturally the Arabs will jump into the game,..they will have no choice & Israel will be affected as well.
    The region will burn with Holy War,millions will die,& the bankers & war profiteers will grow even richer.

    There is a basic fact that all authorized media sources don’t go near.The fact is this,the Moslem world is technologically primitive.Without infusions of outside financing & war technology from the industrial world they are incapable of fielding a modern army & fighting a modern war!If it wasn’t for the Bankers & big business they would need to fight their wars with swords,spears & bows with arrows.If there was an embargo of war materials into the region most of the hostilities would cease!

    To go further afield,there would have been no high tech/ modern warfare,anywhere,for the last 150 years if it wasn’t for the Bankers & Arms Peddlers!Modern warfare is just too expensive to wage by nation states,they would go bankrupt fighting.WW1 & WW2 would never have happened & the wars against Israel would not have occurred if war as a business were outlawed,…millions of victims would be alive today!
    The catch in all of this is there are no politicians & no governments with the ability,as well as the desire,to put a leash on the Bankers & the Military/Industrial Complex.As things stand now this will never happen,..not in this lifetime!

    This was the deal from the very beginning!
    The meme of a nuclear deal was a smokescreen from the very beginning.The nuclear issue was an excuse put up to allow phoney negotiations the conclusion of which would lead to the end of sanctions!From what I have heard Iran may already have nuclear capabilities or can acquire them from outside sources whenever they want!On the face of it,this treaty is so weak that it would be unenforceable & worthless,…..that is if nuclear weapons were the real concern,which they aren’t!The only real tangible result of this theatrical production were the lifting of sanctions.
    In a failing Global Economy the financial benefits of trade with Iran cannot be underestimated.The huge international corporations & especially the Military/Industrial complexes in China,Russia,the EU,& here in America are already counting their money,salivating over their future profits selling weapons & death throughout the Arab & Persian world!
    Obama & his gang are just stooges for George Soros & his associates who are very powerful players in international financial sectors.Kerry & the rest of the high profile politicians who were supposedly negotiating with the Iranians were not important figures in this deal,they were just actors in the play,their job was to take the abuse & in the end sign the treaty!
