Berlin is uncertain about imposing sanctions against Russia over Syria, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier told journalists upon his arrival to the European Council’s foreign ministers’ meeting in Luxembourg on Oct. 17.

"I don’t see how the potential sanctions, despite some possible impact in the long term, would facilitate the aid deliveries to the Syrian people," the German minister said.

"I am not the only one who is skeptical about sanctions in this regard," Steinmeier stated.
