Verhagen has doubts on Iran trade mission

Foreign minister Maxime Verhagen has expressed doubts about a trade mission to Iran being organised by the Dutch trade council NCH for later this month.

Businesses that take part in the visit must realise they may have to deal with tougher international sanctions placed on Iran, he told parliament on Wednesday.
The trade mission, set for June 22 to June 27, is not a formal government operation but is backed by the economic affairs ministry.
