WARSAW, November 17 (Itar-Tass) – It is desirable for the European Union to work out a common stance on relationship with Russia on the basis of mutual interests and goals of the member-nations, says a letter that Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski and German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle have sent to the EU High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy, Catherine Ashton.
The text of the document was published Thursday at the official website of the Polish Foreign Ministry.
It says, among other things, that Poland and Germany will support a strategy for elaboration of a common EU approach towards building the relations with Russia.
Sikorski and Westerwelle welcome the drafting of a unified long-term policy on relations with Russia and accept the proposal to discuss the problem at a ministerial level before the Russia-EU summit that has been scheduled for December.
They describe the construction of a strong relationship between the EU and Russia as an achievable goal and say the past few years have shown that the resetting of relations and openness open up real opportunities for both sides.
