London, Feb. 13 – The European Union approved on Monday United Nations sanctions against Iran over its refusal to suspend uranium enrichment.

“The EU implements the measures in UN Security Council Resolution 1737, which are targeted against the most sensitive parts of the Iranian nuclear and missile programmes”, according to a statement released following a meeting of EU Foreign Ministers in Brussels.

The UN Security Council unanimously voted in December to impose sanctions against Tehran’s suspected nuclear weapons program. It gave Tehran two months to suspend enrichment and return to the negotiating table.

The EU “continues to support efforts to find a negotiated long-term solution, which would open the way for a new relationship with Iran based on mutual respect and expanded cooperation”, the statement said.

The 27-nation bloc adopted the following restrictive measures:

– a ban on the supply of goods, technology or technical or financial assistance which could contribute to enrichment-related, reprocessing or heavy water-related activities or to the development of nuclear weapon delivery systems;

– a visa ban on persons and a freeze of assets on persons and entities listed in UNSCR 1737 (2006) and designated by the UN Security Council or by the sanctions committee, and other persons or entities directly associated with or providing support for Iran’s proliferation-sensitive nuclear activities or for the development of nuclear weapon delivery systems;

– steps to prevent the specialised teaching or training of Iranian nationals in disciplines which would contribute to Iran’s proliferation-sensitive nuclear activities and development of nuclear weapons delivery systems.
