London, Jan. 22 – The European Union called on the international community to fully implement sanctions against Iran as was demanded by the United Nations Security Council in December.

“The Council [of the EU”> deplored Iran’s failure to take the steps repeatedly required by the IAEA Board of Governors and the United Nations Security Council”, EU foreign ministers announced in a statement following their meeting in Brussels on Monday.

“It welcomed the unanimous adoption of Security Council Resolution 1737 on 23 December 2006. This decision represents a necessary and proportionate response to Iran’s disregard for the concerns of the international community and for Security Council Resolution 1696”, the 27-nation bloc said.

The EU “welcomed the measures in Resolution 1737, which are targeted against the most sensitive parts of the Iranian nuclear and missile programmes, and called on all countries to implement the measures in full and without delay”.

“To ensure effective implementation of measures in UNSCR 1737 while remaining consistent with EU policy, and recalling the EU policy not to sell arms to Iran, Ministers agreed that the EU should prevent the export to and import from Iran of the goods on the NSG and MTCR lists; ban transactions with and freeze the assets of individuals and entities covered by the criteria in UNSCR 1737; ban travel to the EU of the individuals covered by these criteria; and take measures to prevent Iranian nationals from studying proliferation sensitive subjects within the EU”, the statement added.
