''The situation is that American businesses are not allowed to trade in Iran. We never had to take up a formal complaint on the subject, as far as I know,'' European Commission spokesperson for external relations, Emma Udwin, told reporters.
''There is no extra-territoriality about the agreement the US has with its own companies not to trade with Iran,'' she added.
Udwin was responding to a question during the daily Commission news conference on reports that the US was calling on European companies to wind up their businesses in the Islamic Republic.
