UK Considers Sanctions As Response To Iran's Seizure Of British Tanker

British ministers plan to hit Iran with sanctions in the aftermath of the Iranian seizure of a British-flagged oil tanker.

Britain could push for United Nations and European Union sanctions to be re-imposed on Iran.

They had been lifted in 2016 following a deal on Iran’s nuclear program.

British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt is expected to announce diplomatic and economic measures on Sunday.

According to Reuters, one such measure could be potential asset freezes.
