EU Updates Include No New Sanctions

A European Union spokesperson dismissed the notion that the bloc has imposed fresh sanctions against Iran, saying the union has only complied with a series of “technical updates” the UN makes in the context of different sanction regimes periodically.
“There has been some speculation in the press regarding recent updates to listings of individuals and entities in EU legislation vis-à-vis Iran,” Tasnim News Agency on Thursday cited an unnamed EU spokesperson as saying.
The spokesperson added that amendments adopted on June 23 are purely technical and reflect minor clarifications made at the level of the UN regarding such measures. “They do not in any way consist of new designations or other fresh sanctions against Iran. They are part and parcel of regular technical updates, which the UN makes in the context of different UN sanctions regimes from time to time,” the spokesperson explained. In June, the EU updated the listings of 23 people and 14 entities on its anti-nuclear proliferation and ballistic missile-related sanctions on Iran, to reflect amendments made to the UN information.
