Union foreign ministers will meet on Monday in Brussels to discuss EU
relations with Iran at the request of France, Britain and Germany, co-sponsors
of the nuclear deal with Tehran, a diplomatic source in Brussels said.
The ministers' discussion will not be limited to the nuclear agreement and its developments, but will also address missile tests Iran carried out recently, Iran's regional behavior, and its negative activity in Europe, a diplomatic source said.
The US is pressing the EU to consider economic sanctions on Iran over its ballistic missiles, a senior US official said on Tuesday, warning of a wider regional conflict if Tehran’s ambitions remain unchecked, Reuters reported.
“We would like to see the European Union pass sanctions that would designate the people and the organizations that are facilitating Iran’s missile testing and missile proliferation,” Brian Hook, Washington’s special representative for Iran, told Reuters after meetings with European powers in Brussels.
