EU Leaders Impose New Sanctions On Iran

European leaders decided today to impose accompanying new sanctions on Iran over its nuclear program beyond those already approved by UNSC. The EU sanctions include a ban on new investment, technical assistance and transfer of technology to Iran’s oil and gas industry, adding more pressure on global energy majors to end their activities in Iran. The new sanctions also target IRGC as well as the country's transportation and banking system [AFP, 17 June].

Record deficits, record unemployment, record suicides due to mental fatigue and all we can think is sanctions? Grow up to all leaders of the EU, Israel will destroy us. Germany has already mentioned up to 200,000 employees might be lost, EADS potentially lose $25B.
