MOSCOW, December 22. /TASS/. Moscow and London are ready for pragmatic relations and cooperation, the Russian foreign ministry said on Tuesday after talks between Russia’s First Deputy Foreign Minister Vladimir Titiov and Britain’s Minister of State at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) David Lidington.
The two diplomats discussed prospects for Russia-Britain relations in the context of efforts to counter the terrorist group Islamic State and a number of other topical international and regional problems, the Russian foreign ministry said.
"Despite the differences on a number of problems, both sides stressed their commitment to solve problems in a pragmatic atmosphere, to develop foreign policy cooperation between Russia and Great Britain and to promote mutually beneficial cooperation in the trade-and-economic, cultural and humanitarian spheres," the ministry said. "The two diplomats expressed the hope for successful organization of the cross-year of the languages and literatures."
