Incoming official says Moscow is no longer a 'strategic partner' with regional bloc

European Union governments will decide on a package of new sanctions against Russia by Friday, incoming EU foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini told the European Parliament on Tuesday, calling for "the strongest possible response".

Russia was also no longer a "strategic partner" of the European Union, said Mogherini, the Italian foreign minister, as she took questions from members of Parliament following her nomination to the EU post on Saturday.
