BERLIN, June 10. /TASS/. The European Union should seek to create a common economic zone from Lisbon to Vladivostok in the long term, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Friday speaking at the German Family Businesses Day conference.

"We should move gradually towards this goal," the chancellor said.

She added that the sanctions imposed on Russia are not an aim itself and that they depend on the implementation of the Minsk accords, which, according to Merkel, are "the key to lifting" the restrictive measures.
