EU continue to be united on keeping sanctions against Russia - Mogherini
EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini speaking in the Atlantic Council in Washington on Friday said that the European Union (EU) will be united on keeping sanctions against Russia.
"Europeans will continue to be united on that. I don't know if Americans will be united on that, but Europeans will," Mogherini said.
"I want to be clear on this. For us, the sanctions are not a policy itself. It's not something we take particular pleasure in having. For us, it is an instrument to put pressure and achieve the result. For us, the result is not keeping the sanctions. For us the result is to solve the conflict and Ukraine," she said.
