BRUSSELS - European Union ambassadors agreed on Monday to impose an embargo on crude oil imports from Iran, to be phased in by July 1.

EU foreign ministers are expected to approve the measure later in the day.

The EU has gradually imposed sanctions on Iran since 2007 as part of Western efforts to put pressure on Tehran over its nuclear work. Sanctions include those agreed by the United Nations and autonomous EU measures.

In addition to the nuclear track, the EU has imposed travel bans and asset freezes on 61 Iranians seen as responsible for human rights violations.
