EU denies sanctions report on Iran

BRUSSELS, Jan 28 (KUNA) — The European Union denied Thursday media reports that France has asked the EU to consider new sanctions against Iran over its recent missile tests.
“Such a request was never submitted to the EU. It was also not discussed in the last meeting of EU Foreign Affairs Council”, EU spokesperson for foreign affairs, Catherine Ray, told a news conference here today.
She noted that EU High Representative Federica Mogherini had debriefed the EU foreign ministers during their meeting in Brussels on 18 January on the implementation day of ending the sanctions on Iran but new sanctions on Iran were not discussed.(end)
