EU working on new sanctions against Iran

British Foreign Secretary William Hague stated that European Union is putting together a new set of sanctions to increase pressure on Iran to halt its nuclear program.

“We are working on those sanctions … quite urgently and I hope we will be able to discuss them further when we meet again in the middle of October,” he said in an interview at the British embassy in Cairo.

Hague said a meeting of EU foreign ministers in Cyprus on Friday had shown “a very strong level of support for further sanctions”.

Hague described sanctions as “better than any other approach that is available to us” but repeated Britain’s standard line that no option had been taken off the table.
