MOSCOW, June 21. /TASS/. The Kremlin does not rule out that Germany’s Vice-Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel will visit Moscow next week.
"Despite the known problems in bilateral relations the contacts go on and so does trading and economic cooperation. Those who oversee such issues can and must be maintained contact with," presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the media.
He recalled Gabriel’s previous visit to Russia and his meeting with President Vladimir Putin, which focused on issues of trading and economic cooperation between Russia and Germany.
"The scope of our relations, even in the context of the existing slump - and there has been a reduction by 30% with the European countries on the average - still remains significant, so there is a theme for discussion," Peskov said.
Germany’s Vice-Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel may visit Moscow early next week and hold a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Rheinische Post quoted government sources as saying.
Russian-German economic relations complicated by the regime of sanctions will be on the agenda.
Last time Gabriel visited Moscow in October 2015.
