Luxembourg to Oppose 'Sector Sanctions' on Russia Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Thu, Jul 10, 2014, 10:15 PM

Luxembourg is refusing to endorse President Barry Obama's 'sector sanctions' on Russia and would not officially recognize Crimea as territory of the Ukraine.

According to the Voice of Russia, "Luxembourg Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn believes that it is time for Europe to stop kicking around the Crimea and trying to return the peninsula to Ukraine because this will not happen in the next ten years anyway. In Asselborn's opinion, dwelling on sanctions against Russia is not the best way for Europe to build up relations with Moscow."

Asselborn is quoted as saying that, "De facto the Crimea is not part of Ukraine any more. Needless to say, we will not recognise this de jure. It is an illusion to believe that we can find a solution right now. Russia will not talk to us about this. However, things can change in ten years."

As reported by the Voice of Russia, "Jean Asselborn believes that attempts to return the Crimea to Ukraine should be postponed till 2024, otherwise we'll be running a risk of WW3, informs Russia today."

Luxembourg could face Obama Sanctions for opossing 'Sector Sanctions.'
