WASHINGTON - The European Union is preparing new restrictive measures against Iran and shares US concerns about Tehran's nuclear program, European Council President Herman Van Rompuy said on Monday.

Van Rompuy did not offer details of the planned sanctions in remarks to reporters after a White House meeting with President Barack Obama and other top US officials.

In a joint statement issued after that meeting, the United States and European Union said they shared "deep concern" about the possible military dimensions of Tehran's nuclear pursuits.

"We stress our determination to ensure that Iran complies with its obligations, including abiding by United Nations Security Council resolutions, and to cooperate fully with the IAEA to address the international community's serious concerns over the nature of its nuclear program," the statement read.
