One Country Holding EU 'Hostage' On Russian Oil Embargo, Lithuania Says


(MENAFN- The Peninsula) Reuters

Brussels: Lithuanian Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis said on Monday that the European Union's plans to impose an oil embargo on Russia were being blocked by just one of the bloc's 27 members.

'The whole union is being held hostage by one member state ... we have to agree, we cannot be held hostage,' Landsbergis said as he arrived for a meeting with his counterparts.

Hungary is the country that is holding out, EU diplomats said.
