US State Dept says fresh sanctions against Russia to take time

White HouseWASHINGTON, Nov 8 (PRIME) -- Introduction of fresh U.S. sanctions against Russia will take time as all possible consequences for the national security should be examined thoroughly, the U.S. Department of State spokesman Robert Palladino told reporters late on Wednesday.

УThe process takes time and we want to get sanctions right. We need to carefully consider the impact that sanctions have on U.S. national security interests, and IТll leave it at that. But this is something that we take seriously,Ф he said.

Russia has failed to meet the U.S. requirements under the Chemical and Biological Weapons Control and Warfare Elimination Act of 1991 (CBW Act), he also said.

In August, the U.S. sanctions over MoscowТs alleged involvement in the March poisoning of the Skripal family in the U.K. came into force. The second package of sanctions that can affect the domestic state banks was said to be introduced in November.
