London, Dec. 16 – The European Union accused Iran on Friday of having a “negative impact” on peace in the Middle East.

The EU “expresses its concern about the negative impact of Iranian policies on stability and security in the Middle East”. The statement came at the end of a two-day summit of EU heads of state in Brussels.

The 25-nation block underlined that Tehran needed to play a “responsible” role in the region.

It deplored Iran’s failure to halt uranium enrichment activities, something required of it by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Board of Governors and the United Nations Security Council. “This could only have negative consequences for relations between the EU and Iran”, it said.

“The European Council reiterates its full support for efforts to find a negotiated solution to the nuclear issue and regrets that Iran has not engaged seriously with the far-reaching proposals presented to Iran by the High Representative on 6 June. These could serve as a basis for a long-term agreement, which would give Iran everything it needs to develop a modern civil nuclear power industry while addressing the concerns expressed by the IAEA Board and the UN Security Council”, it said, adding, “In the absence of action by Iran to meet its obligations, the European Council supports work in the Security Council towards the adoption of measures under Article 41 of Chapter VII of the UN Charter”.

The EU “expresses deep concern at the Iranian government’s recent statements concerning the EU and individual Member States, as well as its threats towards Israel, and the continuing deterioration of human rights and political freedoms of its citizens”.

The EU will keep all of these issues and its policies under close review and will calibrate its approach in the light of Iran’s actions, the statement said.
