LONDON - Britain expects to announce sanctions on further Iranian "entities and individuals" at a European Union foreign ministers' meeting on Dec. 1, the Foreign Office said.

"We are discussing wide-ranging sanctions (on) Iran with partners in the EU," a Foreign Office spokeswoman said.

France said earlier it had proposed to EU partners a halt to oil imports from Iran, which is at odds with the West over its nuclear program.
