EU to levy arms embargo on Venezuela, sets basis for sanctions -diplomats

BRUSSELS, Nov 8 (Reuters) - European Union ambassadors agreed on Wednesday to impose an arms embargo on Venezuela and set out the legal basis for further sanctions in response to the political crisis in the South American country, two EU diplomats said.

EU foreign ministers are expected to formalise the measures at a regular meeting on Monday, the diplomats said. (Reporting by Robin Emmott; Editing by Alastair Macdonald)
