Peter Altmaier: Germany not interested in anti-Russia sanctions
Germany is not interested in sanctions against Russia, Germany’s Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy Peter Altmaier said at the 'Competitive Russia - new ways' conference in Berlin.
Altmaier noted that the sanctions were adopted for political reasons and the countries should work on their change
"I personally think that we have no interest in sanctions," he said. "We’ve adopted the sanctions because we had political reasons for this, we prolonged them many times, the EU was united, but we must work to change political relations to arrive at different solutions one time," the Prime news agency cited the minister as saying.
