MOSCOW, July 24. /TASS/. Russia and its European partners continue to work on joint energy projects and discuss potential sanctions that might impact this cooperation adversely, Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Monday.
"We are working with European partners on the implementation of a number of big projects. Naturally, we and our European partners attach great significance to completion of these projects and we will continue to work for that," he told journalists.
"Logically, we discuss some sanctions-related topics that potentially can hamper implementation of these projects, which causes concern for us," he added.
Earlier, the office of Kevin McCarthy, Republican majority leader in the US House of Representatives, confirmed that the US lawmakers would vote the bill imposing further anti-Russian sanctions on Tuesday, July 25. The Politico newspaper reported that the deadlock situation over that initiative had been resolved on Saturday. However, the congressmen did not include a provision which would facilitate the process of lifting sanctions from Russia. According to the newspaper, the final bill, which initially included restrictions against Iran, would also include sanctions against North Korea, as McCarthy had suggested earlier.
The bill is expected to win overwhelming majority in the House of Representatives on Tuesday.
