WARSAW Aug 14 Poland is considering imposing
sanctions on the import of Russian coal, Foreign Minister
Radoslaw Sikorski said on Thursday.
Poland is among the more vocal supporters in the European
Union of tougher sanctions on Russia over its intervention in
Ukraine. Poland also has its own coal industry which competes
with Russian imports.
"As regards coal, it has been a subject of intense
reflection," Sikorski told a news conference when asked about
calls for an embargo on Russian coal imports. He declined to
give further details.
