The EU will increase the pressure on Iran on Thursday by unveiling more sanctions, including banning investment in the country’s key energy sector.

The measures will also include blacklisting and freezing the assets of members of the elite Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps.

A draft declaration on Iran, obtained by the Guardian and to be agreed by European government chiefs at a Brussels summit, states that “new restrictive measures have become inevitable” because of Tehran’s suspect nuclear programme and its refusal to negotiate over it.

China and Russia, traditionally opposed to sanctions, voted for the measures, while Turkey and Brazil voted against, weeks after striking a surprise nuclear fuel swap deal with Tehran.
