Nuclear expert, the head of the Iran delegation in the European Parliament and Finnish Green MEP Tarja Cronberg is against an EU oil embargo on Iran. She says power-politics could lead to military clashes in the Strait of Hormuz: "And the world doesn't need military action at this time." EU foreign ministers are set to unveil the sanctions on Monday (23 January), with Iran saying the West is about to commit "economic suicide."
