Lieberman Welcomes EU’s Iran Sanctions


Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman sent a letter Tuesday to European Union Foreign Minister Catherine Ashton complimenting the EU for declaring new sanctions on Iran. “This is an important and brave step,” he said, adding that the move was particularly impressive in light of the current financial difficulties in Europe.

The sanctions are aimed at stopping Iran’s unsupervised nuclear program.
