EU to widen sanctions against Belarus
TRT World says EU and NATO accuse President Alexander Lukashenko of using migrants as a weapon to pressure the West by sending migrants onto the borders of Poland and the Baltic states.
The European Union diplomats have said the body plans to widen sanctions against Belarus next week.
European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said that sanctions would apply to individuals as well as entities. Her comments came on Wednesday after a meeting with US President Joe Biden that touched on Covid-19, climate and foreign affairs.
“Very rapidly at the beginning of next week there will be a widening of the sanctions against Belarus,” she told reporters after the meeting.
