U.S. President Donald Trump has delayed imposing additional sanctions on Russia and is unlikely to approve them unless Moscow carries out a new cyber attack or some other provocation, a senior administration official said on Monday.
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Sunday that Washington was preparing new sanctions on Russia over its support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
“The ambassador got out ahead of things this time,” the senior administration official, who deals with the issue, told Reuters on condition of anonymity.
The Washington Post first reported that Trump had put a stop to a plan for additional economic sanctions on Russia.
