12:18, 14 December 2015

The extension of sanctions against Russia will be discussed at the upcoming EU summit on December 17-18, said Federica Mogherini, EU High Representative on Foreign Affairs and Security Policy (UNN).

“Russia’s not on the EU Council’s agenda today. If the ministers want to discuss this issue, there’s no problem for me. As I understand, it will be discussed at the summit later this week, as it has always been when it came to sanctions”, Mogherini said.

She added that among the matters of the current agenda are the latest developments in Libya, financial assistance to the country and the national unity plan for Libya, which was approved in Rome Sunday.

Earlier, the EU postponed the decision to prolong sanctions against Russia. Several EU countries blocked the respective decision to be made, so the issue has been put aside until the EU Summit takes place in Brussels on December 17-18.
