Germany says the EU needs several days to pass new sanctions on Russia

1 min read

It will take the European Union a few more days to reach an agreement on a new package of sanctions against Russia.

German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said the package included a ban on Russian oil.

"As Germans, we know this [an oil embargo] is not an easy step. "Some issues still need to be resolved and this will not happen today," Annalena Baerbock told reporters as she arrived for a meeting with her EU counterparts in Brussels.

However, Baerbock is confident that they will find an agreement in the coming days.21Media
