The EU and Canada agreed to intensify cooperation on sanctions against Russia and confirmed their intention to continue supporting Ukraine, according to a joint statement issued after a meeting held in Canada.
"We will continue to impose extensive sanctions targeting Russia, as well as stringent export control restrictions and prohibitions. Moreover, we are committed to further strengthening our cooperation and coordination on broader sanctions actions, including disrupting circumvention, in support of our policy objectives," the joint statement says.
The meeting was attended by Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau, President of the European Council Charles Michel and President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen.
The most extensive section of the statement focuses on Ukraine. It contains promises to continue financial and military assistance, to cooperate in training personnel for the armed forces of this country, and also to try "to ensure the widest possible international support for a comprehensive, just and lasting peace" based on the so-called Ukraine’s Peace Formula."
