The import of Russian liquefied natural gas (LNG) could be banned in the next European Union sanctions package.

EU countries will take weeks to hammer out the next set of sanctions against Russia, EU diplomats said.

Countries including Belgium, Germany and France have asked for European Commission for assessments on whether a ban on LNG transshipments at European ports will hit the Russian economy more than the EU's, the diplomats told Reuters.

"There's broad support but mainly questions. This package is just stitches - we've never done anything like this before," one diplomat said, referring to the LNG.

The EU is currently working on the 14th package of sanctions against Russia.
