US Treasury chief says Russia sanctions to come within weeks
US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Friday previewed a fresh wave of sanctions against Russia, which he said could come within weeks, France 24 reports.
"I don't want to leave here without emphasizing -- you haven't asked me yet -- we are working on Russia sanctions," Mnuchin told reporters during a discussion about sanctions on North Korea.
"I can assure you that is in the process. I will be back here within the next several weeks to talk about that," he said.
The White House this week stepped up efforts to counter allegations that it is a soft touch on Moscow.
