    Although there has recently been lots of controversies on issues such as developing an "independent payment system" Europe and a "pseudo-swift structure" to maintain the nuclear deal with Iran, many analysts and experts in economic affairs believe that there's no real intention to actualize this idea among the EU authorities. In the meantime, there are deterrent factors that have hampered European independence from the United States, and it seems that these factors are now highlighted under the presidency of Donald Trump.

    Iran’s neighbor, Turkey, with a population almost as large as Iran’s is suffering some of the same economic problems that Iran is suffering: a currency that has fallen precipitously against the “almighty” U.S. dollar, much higher inflation, and in Turkey’s case debt rating downgrades by the likes of the debt rating agencies (those with the most clout based in the U.S.), calls for the Turkish authorities to bend over to Western financial authorities and institutions, to borrow money from the IMF and well, you know, lose gobs of their sovereignty.
