Lithuania’s Foreign Minister Landsbergis: “Sanctions imposed by the EU are working, but many companies and sectors still can and must complement the sanctions list. Rosatom is one of them”
On 23 January in Brussels, Lithuania’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Gabrielius Landsbergis attended the EU’s Foreign Affairs Council.
“Sanctions imposed by the EU are working, but many companies and sectors still can and must complement the sanctions list. Rosatom is one of them. It is thus essential to make it clear that we are all striving for Ukraine’s victory and Russia’s defeat,” the head of Lithuania’s diplomacy said.
EU foreign affairs ministers reached a political agreement for further military support under the European Peace Facility.
The Council also added 18 individuals and 19 entities to the list of those subject to restrictive measures in the context of the existing Iran human rights sanctions regime.
In response to the situation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, the Council established a new fully-fledged civilian mission in Armenia, which will aim to ease border tensions.
“Today, the Council took a step toward important decisions. In addition, the dynamics of the meeting shows that, despite the obvious diversity of views, we all are united at the EU table,” Landsbergis said.
