"German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Holland said on Tuesday they favored extending EU sanctions against Russia in an upcoming EU summit where the issue will be discussed. ... The EU's 28 leaders are set to meet in Brussels on Thursday to discuss the sanctions against Russia which will expire on January 31 next year. There appeared to be consensus amongst most member states to extend the sanctions. Some in the bloc, however, favor lifting the sanctions as Moscow has imposed retaliatory measures that hurt EU farmers." (12/13/16)
