Germany, France, Denmark, Spain, Italy and the Czech Republic have submitted 16 proposals for new European Union sanctions against Iran due to recent protests in the country, Reuters reported citing a German Foreign Ministry source.

The source added that the measures would target people and institutions that are responsible for suppressing nationwide protests.

The countries in question want EU foreign ministers to decide on the sanctions at a meeting on Oct. 17, with no resistance expected from EU members, Spiegel magazine wrote.

Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said Monday that Iran's crackdown on the protests was an expression of a clear fear of education and the power of freedom, and promised sanctions.

It is also hard to accept that our foreign policy options are limited. But we can amplify their voice, bring charges and impose sanctions. Which we are doing, Baerbock tweeted.
