BRUSSELS, October 20. /TASS/. The latest consultations in the European Union show that there is no consensus on toughening of sanctions against the Russian Federation due to the Syria policy, European Parliament President Martin Schulz said Thursday upon arrival at the EU summit.
"Judging by what we have seen over the past few days during consultations, including after the Normandy format talks, I don’t have an impression that there will be new sanctions against Russia," Schulz said.
According to the official, Russia is open for constructive dialogue with the European Union.
"Yesterday the Russian leadership seemed open for constructive dialogue to me," Schulz said while responding to journalists’ questions on possible new sanctions against Russia over the situation in Syria.
As regards the current sanctions regime in relation to Moscow, the official said the EU will keep using it until the Minsk Agreements on Ukraine are implemented in full.
