EU Foreign Ministers endorse French bid for sanctions against Iran

the European Union’s Foreign Ministers in Brussels endorsed a French government decision to sanction Iranian nationals whom were accused of plotting a bomb attack in Paris, potentially allowing the measures to take effect across the European bloc. Several Ministers whom attended the vote, voiced the opinion that the “technical work could now start on an EU-wide asset freeze on the Iranian intelligence service and two of its operatives, over a failed plot to carry out a bomb attack at a rally near Paris organized by an exiled Iranian opposition group.” Furthermore, Denmark, which announced that it suspected an Iranian government intelligence service had tried to carry out an assassination plot on its soil in October, also pushed for similar EU-wide sanctions against the Islamic Republic, once its investigation is complete.
