ST. PETERSBURG, June 17. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker did not discussed sanctions as such at their meeting on Thursday, Russian presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Friday.
"The sanctions were not discussed as such," the Kremlin official told TASS. "They discussed the situation of the actually frozen Russia-EU relations."
"There is the general understanding that given all the persisting disagreements, including conceptual ones, we cannot drive ourselves into such a vacuum. This does not meet either the EU or Russian interests," said the Kremlin official.
According to him, it was stressed at the negotiations that the sides will have to do business with each other, but not as before. "The sides have the understanding of the fact that it is necessary to finds ways out of this situation," Peskov said.
