Top Spanish official says primary task is to end EU-Russia sanctions war
Madrid is calling for immediate steps to end the war of sanctions between the EU and Russia, the high commissioner for the 'Spain' brand, Carlos Espinosa de los Monteros said in an interview with the Kommersant newspaper published on Tuesday.
"Our primary task is to stop the race of sanctions and counter-sanctions and prevent the new ones. The second goal is to try to find compromise decisions that would allow leaving the sanctions in the past," said the high-ranking Spanish official, who is in charge of improving the country's image abroad in the economic, social, cultural, scientific and technological spheres.
"I do not know whether the current level of talks between Russia and the European Union is advanced enough to cancel the sanctions by this spring. I hope it is. Anyway, we've got a few months to work hard on that," he told the newspaper.
