Media captionThe foreign secretary tells Today that the EU should match US sanctions against Russia
Europe should enforce farther sanctions on Russia in response to its “malign” behaviour around the world, Jeremy Hunt will say on his first visit to the US as foreign secretary this week.
He will call on the EU to replicate Washington's “comprehensive” response to the Salisbury nerve agent attack.
The US is set to ban Russian exports of security-sensitive goods following the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal.
Europe must engage with Russia but be “blunt” about its actions, he will say.
Labour warned against new sanctions which it said would “further ratchet up international tensions”.
