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.
