The new sanctions against Russia that U.S. President Donald Trump signed into law on Wednesday are "more than problematic", German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said.

"The draft law makes clear that they're pursuing economic interests and we think that's not acceptable," he said.
"Aggressively combining foreign policy issues with American economic interests and saying: we want to drive Russian gas out of the European market so we can sell American gas there is definitely not something we can accept." ■
