Surprise, surprise. Switzerland is the first country to lift its sanctions against the Islamic Republic of Iran. The ink on the nuclear deal between the P5+1 and Iran is not even dry — in fact, the deal hasn’t even been officially approved in the US — but the Swiss-Iran trade route is open for business.
The Swiss have a history of couching their foreign policy decisions under the innocuous — or even positive — sounding “neutral” or “diplomatic” label. It allows the leadership and the populace to fool itself into believing that a decision, say, to do business with Iran, is laudable.
