Brussels – As EU foreign ministers reached a political agreement on Monday to introduce sanctions against the persons responsible for the arrest and prison sentencing of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, Slovenia’s Anže Logar pointed to the need for the EU to be united in its attitude towards Russia.
US Secretary of State nominee Antony Blinken gave a first inkling about the stance the Biden administration will take regarding Turkey in the hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. His approach was clearly critical; however, the relationship is complex and any conclusions would be premature.
The meeting will take place tomorrow, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.
Psaki said the two leaders would discuss bilateral relations, as well as Biden's decision to formally revoke the permit necessary to build the Keystone XL oil pipeline between the two North American states, Reuters reported.
