Australia slapped fresh sanctions on Iran over its nuclear program that restrict dealing with the Islamic Republic's petroleum and financial sectors, AFP reported Tuesday.

The country joined the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom in widening sanctions against Iran as the European Union mulls the possibility of an oil embargo.

According to Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd, Canberra has grown increasingly concerned about Iran's nuclear program.

He called on Tehran to follow the United Nations and the International Atomic Energy Agency and work with the "international community on its nuclear program," AFP quoted Rudd as saying.
