英国将冻结伊朗银行资产 Britain to Freeze Iranian Bank Assets

16 June, 2008

英国说将冻结伊朗最大一家银行的资产,进一步惩罚德黑兰没有消减西方国家对伊朗受到怀疑的核武器项目的忧虑。布朗首相今天(星期一)在伦敦与美国总统布什举行的联合记者会上宣布了冻结决定。

布朗说,他还将要求其他欧洲国家政府本星期晚些时候同意对德黑兰采取新一轮制裁。

Britain says it is freezing the assets of Iran's largest bank, in a further move to penalize Tehran for failing to ease Western concerns about its suspected nuclear weapons program. Prime Minister Gordon Brown announced the freeze today (Monday), at a joint news conference in London with U.S. President George Bush.

Mr. Brown said he will also press other European governments to agree later this week on a new round of sanctions against Tehran.
