Us wants more sanctions on iran, but won’t impose sanctions on Iran without first reaching agreement
The EU is ready to impose further sanctions on Iran on condition of talks on its nuclear program, a source close to the talks said on Friday.
The EU wants sanctions on Iran on grounds of possible links to its ballistic missile program, which some countries in the Middle East have accused Tehran of having in violation of the deal, said the source who requested anonymity.
But according to the source, EU memb김해출장샵ers also want sanctions on Iran on the condition of Iran agreeing to certain conditions.
“If it were up to the Council of Ministers, sanctions would have been imposed in September this year,” the source told reporters on Thursday. “If all parties come to the conclusion that the Iranian nuclear programme is completely peaceful, we would consider it.”
The EU, which is also under pressure to make progress on talks on Iran’s nuclear program, has repeatedly said it has not decided on any tougher measures for Iran.
The source said the EU is ready to impose further sanctions on Iran “without first reaching an agreement,” a statement that followed criticism from Washington and London after the EU’s chief negotiator for foreign affairs has told a senior EU diplomat that it is up to the United States and European Union to find a solution for the Iranian nuclear issue.
“We also discussed more sanctions on Iran, but not without first reaching agreement with Iran on the terms on which this step should take place,” the source said.
The senior EU diplomat, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the confidential nature of the talks, added that there were still details to be worked out, including the timing and frequency of each round수원출장마사지 of sanctions. The diplomat spoke on condition of anonymity because she바카라 사이트 was not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.
While the source indicated the EU was willing to impose further sanctions against Iran, he noted that they must be aimed at helping to convince Iran’s regime that further sanctions are necessary.
But he also said that imposing additional sanctions on Iran would only hurt the Iranian economy.
“The sanctions will only aggravate the situation, not help. It’s only aimed at making this regime understand that sanctions are not the answer,” the source said.
