German Chancellor Angela Merkel said about the need to continue the policy of sanctions against Russia, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to the Apostrophe.
She said this at a forum organized by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation.
According to the Chancellor, the dialogue between the EU and Russia, it is necessary to give new impulses.
Violation of fundamental rules of international law, as outlined by Merkel, must be called by their names. Therefore, the policy of sanctions will remain until there is progress in the implementation of the Minsk agreements.
“If there is no progress in the Minsk process, we will need to adhere to the sanctions. On the other hand, the EU presidency gives us the opportunity to give a new impulse to relations“, — said the Chancellor.
