Coordinated energy sanctions against Moscow, including a ban on Russian oil, are still "very much on the table," British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Monday.
Speaking during a news conference alongside his Dutch and Canadian counterparts in London, Johnson said it was the "right thing" to move away from Russian hydrocarbons.
On Sunday, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken told CNN's Jake Tapper that the United States is “now talking to our European allies and partners to look at a coordinated way” to ban Russian oil.
Responding to a question as to whether Blinken was wrong in his remarks, Johnson replied, "No, I don't think Tony Blinken was wrong."
"In the sense that we're all together now moving very, very fast and seeing that something that perhaps three or four weeks ago we would never have considered is now very much on the table," Johnson continued.
Countries need to consider how to move away from Russian hydrocarbons "as fast as possible," Johnson added.
"We're going to work together on making sure that we all have the substitutes and the supplies that we need," Johnson continued.
