European Union ambassadors discussed Wednesday possible new sanctions on Iran, diplomats said, under plans aimed at persuading U.S. President Donald Trump to preserve an international nuclear deal with Tehran.The sanctions would not involve measures lifted under the nuclear deal but would instead target individual Iranians that the EU believes are behind Iran's ballistic weapons and its support for the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad, which is also subject to sanctions.EU envoys discussed possible sanctions on the basis of last week's meeting of foreign ministers in Brussels, who agreed that Iran needed to be held to account for its role in Syria's 7-year war-old, even while upholding the Iran nuclear accord.In response, France, Britain and Germany – the three European signatories to the nuclear deal – proposed new sanctions to fellow EU governments on March 16, although countries ranging from traditionally neutral Sweden and Ireland to Iran's closest European allies Italy and Greece still need to be convinced.
