In recent years, it has become apparent that the Iranian regime has turned its efforts into plotting assassinations and attacks on foreign soil. The European Union has taken notice and a firmer stance toward Tehran is being applied.
This week, in fact, the EU leveled sanctions against Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence, as well as two Iranian citizens — Assadollah Asadi, a diplomat in the Iranian Embassy in Vienna, and Saeid Hashemi Moghadam, a senior official in Iran’s intelligence ministry. These are the first sanctions imposed on Iran by the EU since the nuclear deal was adopted in 2015.
