The resolution of France’s Senate on easing sanctions against Russia “can be only welcomed,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Thursday.


“No doubt, this decision can be only welcomed,” Peskov said answering a TASS question.


Peskov reminded that Moscow has stated many times that the ‘sanctions dialogue’ has no prospects. The Kremlin spokesman stressed that the issue of the future of the anti-Russian sanctions is not part of Russia’s agenda.


The French Senate passed a resolution on Wednesday on “gradually softening” the sanctions against Russia imposed by the European Union. The majority of the participants in the plenary meeting of the upper house of the country’s parliament – 302 senators – voted for it, 16 voted against this decision. The meeting was attended by a total of 335 senators. The resolution is advisory.
