BERLIN (Reuters) - The European Union is unlikely to launch sanctions against Turkey at its summit starting on Thursday amid a gas dispute in the eastern Mediterranean, a German government source said.
Greece had requested to raise the issue at the two-day meeting of EU leaders in Brussels, the person said in Berlin on Wednesday.
Germany does not expect the EU to change its stance on sanctions against Turkey a mere two weeks after the last summit’s decision not to impose punitive measures until further notice.
