The leaders of the European Union’s member states gathered in Brussels today (17 June) are to approve the broad outlines of new sanctions against Iran, going beyond those adopted by the United Nations Security Council last week. This follows the 14 June agreement among EU foreign ministers that “strong measures accompanying and supporting the UN Security Council resolution” were needed. The specifics will be determined by member states’ diplomats in time for adoption by ministers on 19 July.
