The European Union on Friday said it would support new UN sanctions against Iran if it does not stop its nuclear enrichment program, Reuters reported. In a joint statement issued at an EU meeting in Brussels, EU state leaders called on Iran to provide "full, clear and credible answers" on its nuclear work to the UN International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The council of member states "reiterates its full support to the work in the UN Security Council to adopt further measures," the statement said, adding that a decision would be made at the next meeting of EU foreign ministers scheduled for January 28. British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said that the EU had received "no assurances about uranium enrichment and the purpose of it in Iran" and called the enrichment program "a problem for the international community." "We will fight for a further UN resolution on these issues and of course consider further sanctions in the matter," he concluded.
