WASHINGTON -- More countries will likely participate in U.S.-led efforts to sanction Russia for its invasion of Ukraine, Assistant Secretary of Commerce Thea Kendler told Nikkei, saying that there would also be no let up in controls of technology exports to China.

"I do expect that you will see more countries published as members of the coalition," said Kendler, who serves as the assistant secretary of commerce for export administration at the Bureau of Industry and Security. On Friday, the bureau added 120 organizations related to Russia and Belarus to the so-called entity list that are subject to export restrictions.
