UK Considers Sanctions As Response To Iran's Seizure Of British Tanker

British ministers plan to hit Iran with sanctions in the aftermath of the Iranian seizure of a British-flagged oil tanker.

Britain could push for United Nations and European Union sanctions to be re-imposed on Iran.

They had been lifted in 2016 following a deal on Iranโ€™s nuclear program.

British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt is expected to announce diplomatic and economic measures on Sunday.

According to Reuters, one such measure could be potential asset freezes.
