BERLIN\, August 28., /TASS/. Time isn't ripe to lift sanctions off Russia yet but the issue may spring up to the agenda one day, Germany's Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Sunday in an interview with ARD television channel.
"Unfortunately, no, if you take account of the pace at which the implementation of the Minsk accords is moving on," she said when a reporter asked her if time had come to scrap the sanctions.
She also said she supported the idea of resetting the system of global control over armaments that has come from German Foreign Ministetr Wrank-Walter Steinmeier.
"We'll have to see yet what the system looks like and eill have to do more discussions of its contours but anyway that's the right and important thing to do," Merkel said.
