    The EU is holding a two-day meeting to resolve an impasse on several key issues. Among top issues, Eastern European leaders have expressed outrage the EU has not yet slapped sanctions on Belarus for its disputed election results, despite such moves from the UK and Canada. Yet as FRANCE 24 correspondent Dave Keating explains, Cyprus has made sanctions on Belarus conditional on the bloc slapping sanctions on Turkey for violating its territorial waters.
