The press secretary of the European Commission Margaritis Skinas has stated that that Brussels is ready to “react promptly” if the United States imposes sanctions affecting the exports of the European Union.

“We in the European Union believe that trade can and should be a win-win for all, and we also believe that trade should be open and honest, based on rules,” he said at a briefing.

According to the representative of the European Commission, in case of any measures on the part of the US will concern European exports, Brussels is ready “to respond quickly and appropriately.”

In the summer of 2017, the head of the EC ordered to urgently consider retaliatory measures in case the US will initiate another package of anti-Russian sanctions, not taking into account the interests of the EU, which has already lost billions without access to the Russian market.
