VILNIUS (Reuters) – All sanctions options against Russia are on the table, but if the European Union imposes sanctions on energy, all EU states must be able to bear the burden, the Foreign Minister of the Netherlands, Wopke Hoekstra, said in Vilnius on Tuesday.
“No measures are out of bounds for the Netherlands, including energy,” Hoekstra told reporters.
“It’s extremely important to take into account the position of all our European allies, some of them are much more dependant on oil and gas than the Netherlands. Others should be able to bear the burden as well,” he added.
