Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast spoke out against a European initiative to impose tougher sanctions on the Islamic republic on Tuesday, a week after the UN Security Council approved yet another round of trade limitations.

"The carrot and stick policy of the EU is wrong and illogical because such measures would not resolve the issue," Reuters quoted Mehmanparast as saying. The EU, UN and US have been calling for measures against Teheran in reaction to its refusal to engage in a diplomatic process that would limit or fully monitor its nuclear program.
