EU countries are nearing a deal on the 11th sanctions package against Russia, APA reports citing POLITICO.
Their permanent representatives in Brussels are aiming to get the package over the line at their meeting today — but with several questions still open, it’s still unclear whether they’ll get there, five EU diplomats said.
This has been sensitive for several EU countries, including Germany, which feared the new law could hurt relations with countries such as Türkiye and China.
To placate those concerns, the EU has watered down the initial proposal from the Commission. On top of that, Greece and Hungary have also been blocking a deal.
