Leaders of the European Union and New Zealand have discussed the response to the aggression of Russia against Ukraine.

The meeting between European Council President Donald Tusk and Prime Minister of New Zealand Bill English was held in Brussels on Tuesday, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

"We discussed the crisis in Ukraine and the importance of full implementation of the Minsk agreements. The EU sanctions against Russia were extended for another six months due to non-fulfilment of the Minsk agreements," Tusk said after talks.

The European Council President also stressed the importance of New Zealand in the field of security.

As a reminder, the European Union extended economic sectoral sanctions against Russia until July 31, 2017 in response to Russia's aggression against Ukraine.
