EU imposes new sanctions on Iran

The European Union sanctioned two individuals and one entity in relation to Iran's "hostile activities" in some European countries. 

The Council of the European Union also called on Iran to halt activities aimed at the development and testing of ballistic missiles.

"The Council is deeply concerned by the hostile activities that Iran has conducted on the territory of several Member States and, in this context, decided to list two individuals and one entity. The European Union will continue to demonstrate unity and solidarity in this area and urges Iran to put an immediate end to such unacceptable behaviour," the council said in a statement.
