Merkel: implementing Minsk agreements is key to lift sanctions against Russia

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that sanctions imposed against Russia were not an end in themselves and that implementation of the Minsk peace agreement was key to getting them lifted.

Merkel also said that in the long term, the European Union should aim for a common economic zone with Moscow which would extend from Russia's Pacific port of Vladivostok to Lisbon.

"We should move gradually towards this goal," Reuters cited her as saying.
