EU raises 'concerns' over US sanctions plan

new sanctions on Russia that may affect energy flows to Europe
The European Union has said it holds deep reservations over a vote by the US House of Representatives to impose tough new sanctions on Russia that may affect energy flows to Europe.


European commissioners, the EU executive's top officials, "expressed their concerns notably because of the draft bill's possible impact on EU energy independence," the bloc said in a statement following talks in Brussels on the matter.

The commission added that it remained "ready to act to protect European interests" if the concerns were not addressed by US politicians, repeating a threat made in May by European Commission head Jean-Claude Juncker.

Earlier today, France's foreign ministry said the sanctions appear to be at odds with international law due to their extra-territorial reach.

The French foreign ministry said in a statement that French and European laws would need to be adjusted in response and added that discussions would be necessary at European Union level because of the potential impact on European citizens and firms.
