EU ban natural gas import from Iran

TEHRAN, IRAN: The European Union has put a ban on imports of natural gas from Iran to address lingering concerns about the Iranian nuclear programme. Additional measures targeted the Central Bank of Iran as well as oil, gas and petrochemical industries. According to EU, the purpose of the sanctions is to encourage the Iranian government to address nuclear concerns.

“There is no doubt that the sanctions against all Iranian citizens set a clear example of the violation of human rights, as sanctions are against the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other human rights documents,” said Fatemeh Bodaqi, Vice President, Legal Affairs, Iran.
