EU to apply pressure on Iran with extra sanctions


www.reuters.com

(Reuters) - EU foreign ministers will approve tighter sanctions on Iran over its disputed nuclear activity on Monday, with steps to block oil and gas investment and curtail Tehran's refining and natural gas capability.

The measures go beyond sanctions imposed by the United Nations last month and mirror steps taken by the United States in recent weeks to apply extra pressure on Tehran and get it back to negotiations over its uranium enrichment program.

Looks like the EU isn't going to let anything get into Iran. The noose is tightening around Iran and it won't let up anytime soon. Amadinejad is stuck between a rock and a hard place. He is going to be forced to make a decision soon. Hopefully he makes the right decision and just backs down. With as many threats as he has made in last couple of years, it is hard to believe he will actually act on them. Eventually he may have had enough and snap.
