BRUSSELS, March 13. /TASS/. The decision on extending sector-targeted EU sanctions against Russia could be delayed until the next EU summit in June, a source at the Brussels diplomatic mission of one of the EU countries told TASS on Friday.
"As we expected, this question will be raised at the upcoming March 19-20 summit of EU leaders in Brussels. But if the situation in eastern Ukraine does not deteriorate, the final decision will probably be postponed until the next EU leaders summit in Brussels in June," the diplomat said.
He confirmed that at the moment, "there is yet no agreement among EU countries on economic sanctions extension."
"The issue of imposing new sectoral restriction measures on Russia is not being discussed in practice as the Minsk agreements are being fulfilled and there is hope for restoring peace in eastern Ukraine," the diplomat stressed.
