Damage to French public transport companies due to a strike against pension reform is reported in a French government communiqué. Paris marked a loss of about 1 billion 50 million euros.
French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe, commenting on the ongoing strike, said that it is “deadlocked” and already “lasts too long”.
As of January 15, only 4.7 percent of all SNCF workers took part in the strike, and about one in five train drivers. 4.7% was one of the lowest rates (lowest at 4.3%) of all days of protests.The EU does not comment on Zarif’s words that EU 3 “sold” the nuclear deal to Trump
