EU Hosting Talks of More Iran Sanctions

Discussions about concrete proposals for more stringent sanctions against Iran are underway in Brussels in advance of the October 15 meeting there of the 27 EU foreign ministers.

The Jerusalem Post has learned that Britain, the Netherlands, Germany, France and Italy have all put forward recommendations for stiffening the sanctions regime.

Among measures being considered are closing existing loopholes that would make it more difficult to work with Iran's central bank, banning flights by Iran Air, adding to the list of Iranian companies that would be blacklisted, and taking further measures against Iran's energy sector.
