VILNIUS (Reuters) – All sanctions options against Russia are on the table, but if the European Union imposes energy sanctions, all EU states must be able to shoulder the burden, Dutch Foreign Minister Wopke Hoekstra said in Vilnius on Tuesday .
“No action is prohibited for the Netherlands, including energy,” Hoekstra told reporters.
“It is extremely important to consider the position of all our European allies, some of them are much more dependent on oil and gas than the Netherlands. Others should also be able to carry the burden,” he added.
