The US has rebuffed high-level pleas from the European Union to grant exemptions to European companies from its sanctions against Iran.
 
In a letter to European nations, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the US rejected the appeal because it wants to exert maximum pressure on Iran.
 
It said exemptions would only be made if they benefited US national security.
 
The EU fears that billions of dollars' worth of trade could be jeopardized as a result of Washington's new sanctions.
