US urges Europeans to impose sanctions on Iran’s missile program

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) –┬áThe United States urged its European and other allies to impose sanctions on Iran to curb its missile program, which it said was an international threat to peace and security.

“We urge the nations of the world to punish any individuals or entities associated with Iran’s missile program,” said Brian Hawk, senior political adviser to US Secretary of State Mike Bombio, in Riyadh. “It’s also a big part of the discussions with the Europeans.”

Hawk, who is negotiating with European allies for changes to Iran’s nuclear deal, said Iran’s missile program would be a key topic in the talks on Sunday between Pompeo and Saudi and Israeli officials.
