Syria may face new sanctions from the EU. The AP reports that the EU is highly likely to reach an agreement on the 15th round of sanctions at the EU Foreign Ministerial Meeting in Brussels Monday.

It reports that the EU will freeze the assets of 3 Syrians and two Syrian companies in Europe, which are suspected of offering money to Syrian President Bashir Assad. At present, sanctions on Syria include an arms embargo, and no oil imports from Syria or investment in the Syrian oil industry, as well as restrictions on banking and finance industries.

Meanwhile, more than 100 individuals, organizations and companies on the sanctions list will not be allowed to enter the borders of EU and their assets in the banks of Europe will also be frozen.
