NNA – New sanctions against Russia expected to be announced on Friday in response to the Ukraine crisis could be lifted if a ceasefire is implemented, Britain’s foreign secretary Philip Hammond said.
“What would be sensible is to go ahead with our plan for increased sanctions,” he told the BBC at a Nato summit in south Wales.
“If there is a ceasefire, if it is signed and if it is then implemented, we can then look at lifting sanctions off.”–AFP
