BRUSSELS - The European Union is expected to bring forward a meeting of foreign ministers due to decide on an oil embargo on Iran by one week to January 23, EU diplomats said on Monday.

They said a final decision would be taken by a meeting of EU ambassadors in Brussels on Tuesday, and the aim would be to avoid overshadowing a summit of EU leaders set for Jan. 30.

"It looks likely it will be brought forward to the 23rd," one of the diplomats said.
