EU to seek ban of sale of Syria oil to Europe

The European Union will seek a ban on sale of Syrian oil to the 27-member bloc, part of new efforts to step up pressure on President Bashar Assad's regime, Britain's foreign secretary said Thursday. Britain and others are also working on a new United Nations Security Council resolution against Syria, William Hague told reporters on the sidelines of an international meeting in Paris on Libya.


Hague said there was "a real prospect that we will agree sanctions on the sale of oil into the European Union," and that the plan would be discussed at a weekend meeting in Poland. (AP)
