Mogerini not sure the US determination to maintain anti-Russian sanctions

The head of EU diplomacy Federica Mogherini said she had no confidence in the constancy of the sanctions policy of the USA against Russia.

A day earlier, Mogerini had a series of meetings in the White House and State Department, including Secretary Rex Tillerson.

According to her, the sides agreed to maintain sanctions until the implementation of the Minsk agreements.

“But I do not know if it will continue to be a common position. As you have not been on my meetings, I was not in the Oval Office, where President (USA Donald) Trump called President (Russia, Vladimir) Putin, “- added Mogerini, speaking in Washington.

She noted that he considers the issue important not only for Europeans. “I think this is a key issue for the Congress (US)”, – said the head of EU diplomacy.

At the same time, she stressed that “the Europeans will continue to be united in this respect.”

“I do not know whether the Americans will take a common position in this respect, but we will,” – promised to Mogherini.
