VIENNA, Austria (AP) – The European Union has formally protested to Russia about its sale of sophisticated missiles to Iran, European and U.S. officials said. In a note to Russia’s foreign ministry, the EU complained the deal sent a wrong signal at a time when Iran is increasingly isolated for harsh anti-Jewish rhetoric from its president, suspicions that it is aiding terrorists and its poor human rights record.
