BRUSSELS — Danish Foreign Minister Anders Samuelsen said the European Union has agreed to put an Iranian intelligence service on its terror list after Denmark and France alleged Iran was plotting to kill opposition activists on European soil.
Samuelsen said that EU government ministers on Tuesday “agreed to enact sanctions.”
He said it is a “strong signal from the EU that we will not accept such behavior in Europe.”
Paris alleges that Tehran’s Intelligence Ministry’s internal security section was linked to the alleged attempt to bomb a rally of opponents on June 30 outside Paris. The Danes say Iran in October was planning to kill in Denmark a member of the group that Tehran has blamed for a September 22 attack that killed at least 25 people.
