Britain reportedly is urging its European partners to reconsider one of the most biting Iran sanctions among those set to kick in this summer.
A broad range of European Union sanctions targeting Iran’s energy sector include a ban on insuring ships that transport Iranian oil.
The New York Times reported that Britain, a longtime base for sea insurers, has convened meetings with other European nations to reconsider the ban, set to start on July 1.
Reuters is reporting that Britain wants a six-month delay. — jta
