The European Union foreign ministers have met in Brussels to impose tougher sanctions on Iran over its nuclear program.

The renewed sanctions include banning EU countries on doing business with Iran, especially in the oil and gas sector. The EU Foreign Ministers, from 27 member states, also agreed to implement sanctions imposed by the UN Security Council last month. That includes restrictions on trade, financial services, energy, transport, visa bans and asset freezing. The EU countries vowed not to deal with Iranian banks, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps or Iranian shipping companies. They also called on Iran to meet with the international community for talks over its nuclear program.
