PAPHOS, Cyprus - Britain's Foreign Secretary William Hague urged the European Union on Friday to impose new sanctions on Iran over its nuclear program, as Israel continues to threaten military action.

"It is necessary to increase pressure on Iran, to intensify sanctions, to add further to EU sanctions that are already enforced," Hague told reporters before a meeting of EU foreign ministers in Cyprus.

He did not specify what form any new sanctions would take or whether the ministers would discuss the issue in detail.

The EU implemented its latest round of sanctions on Iran in July, banning oil imports from the Islamic Republic. The United States is applying increasing diplomatic pressure around the world to isolate the Iranian economy.
