EU readies sanctions on Venezuela, approves arms embargo

BRUSSELS, Nov 13 (Reuters) - European Union foreign ministers approved economic sanctions including an arms embargo on Venezuela on Monday, but will decide who to target at a later stage, officials said.

Ministers agreed the arms embargo and the legal basis for travel bans and asset freezes without debate at a regular meeting in Brussels. (Reporting by Robin Emmott; editing by Philip Blenkinsop)
