Fresh sanctions against Russia for its actions in Syria remain an option but European Union leaders will not take any decisions on this at a summit this week, a senior German official said on Wednesday.

The official said that European Council President Donald Tusk had indicated that no decisions would be taken on Russia at the meeting of EU leaders on Thursday and Friday.

"That means it won't take any options off the table. Sanctions are one of the options on the table. We expect they will remain on the table after the summit," the official said.
