PRAGUE, June 14. /TASS/. The European Union will keep the current anti-Russian sanctions at least to the yearend, Czech Foreign Minister Lubomir Zaoralek told the national television on Sunday.
"I believe it most probable that the sanctions’ term will be extended to the yearend," he said. "I came to the conclusion following the talks (with the EU politicians)."
He said the issue of lifting or easing the sanctions is not on the agenda now. The tense situation in Ukraine’s eastern regions still remains, and the EU may change its position regarding development of cooperation with Russia depending on settlement of the situation in Ukraine.
The foreign minister said he did not expect "introduction of tougher sanctions against Russia.".
