The US will continue working on new sanctions against Belarus, and it plans to announce them over the next few weeks, a source familiar with the details of Belarusian opposition figurehead Svetlana Tikhanovskaya’s visit to Washington informed TASS on Tuesday, APA reports.

"There were no promises given to her, no deadlines, because the US is working on sanctions regardless of her visit," the source said, adding that new sanctions are likely to be announced over the next few weeks.

The source did not specify whether the upcoming sanctions would be sectoral. "Tikhanovskaya asked for them, but the US will determine by itself which sanctions to introduce," the source added.
