Ukraine, Montenegro, Albania and Norway claim about the intention to negotiate their national policy on the extension of the sanctions against the Russian Federation as the press service of the EU Council reported.
These countries joined the decision on the extension of the anti-Russian sanctions.
"The Candidate Countries Montenegro and Albania, and the EFTA country Norway, member of the European Economic Area, as well as Ukraine, align themselves with this declaration,” the message said.
They will provide the correspondence of the national policy to the decision of the EU Council.
In its turn, the EU takes into account this commitment and welcomes it.
Earlier the EU leaders agreed to extend the sanctions against the Russian Federation for another six months at the summit in Brussels. The term of the sanctions against Russia ends on July 31.
