The European Union is preparing a fresh round of sanctions against the Syrian regime, banning exports of luxury items
and goods which can be used for internal repression, diplomats said on Friday.
"The sanctions are ready," said an EU diplomat who asked not to be named.
The timing for their adoption however "will depend on the situation on the ground."
A decision could be made at talks in Luxembourg on Monday between foreign ministers from the 27 EU nations. [AFP]
