Bill cuts off Iranian oil to Europe, controls travel
Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb. 7/ Trend M. Moezzi
The Iranian parliament has introduced a double urgency bill to cut off all oil exports to Europe and restrict travel to and from the continent, the Fars news agency reports.
A hundred and fifty members of Iran's parliament have signed the bill directing the executive branch to stop exporting oil to countries supporting the oil embargo against Iran, to limit travel to Iran by Europeans and to limit Iranians' visits to Europe.
The EU has voted to stop importing oil from Iran as of July 1. The measure is part of efforts by the U.S. and its allies to impose sanctions against Iran for its nuclear activities.
