PARIS, June 9. /TASS/. The French government has taken note of the resolution on gradually softening EU sanctions against Russia endorsed by the Senate, French Foreign Ministry spokesman Romain Nadal said on Thursday.
"We have taken note of the fact that the Senate endorsed a resolution on the EU’s restrictive measures against Russia," the diplomat said.
The French Senate passed a resolution on Wednesday on "gradually softening" the sanctions against Russia imposed by the European Union. The majority of the participants in the plenary meeting of the upper house of the country’s parliament - 302 senators - voted for it, 16 voted against this decision. The meeting was attended by a total of 335 senators. The resolution is advisory.
