INU - Thursday marked the second annual Euromoney Conference in Paris, which was attended by an Iranian delegation headed by Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi. Earlier in the week, Iranian state media touted Araqchi’s planned trip and said that the conference would showcase the “vast economic opportunities” available to European investors in the Islamic Republic. In other words, the event promised to help Tehran push back against pressure from the White House and other critics of the Iranian regime who are trying to forestall European investments and make them conditional upon new agreements over Iran’s behavior in such areas as human rights, regional interference, and missile activities.
