BERLIN (Reuters) – The German government hopes talks on a fresh round of EU sanctions against Russia due to its invasion of Ukraine will be completed soon but it will not be a topic at the forthcoming leaders’ summit, a German official said on Wednesday.

A decision on EU candidate status for Ukraine will not be made either, said the official.
