EU meeting on Iran oil embargo set for Jan 23

Tuesday, January 10, 2012

The European Union governments have agreed to bring forward a meeting of foreign ministers expected to decide on an oil embargo on Iran by one week to January 23.

A diplomatic source in Brussels added that the decision to bring it forward from January 30 was taken to avoid a scheduling clash with a summit of EU leaders set for that day.

Iran is facing new sanctions from the West due to its refusal to disclose details of its nuclear program.
