MOSCOW, November 30 /TASS/. Moscow wants the European Union to be a united, stable and predictable partner, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexey Meshkov said after consultations with Jean-Christophe Belliard, the new Deputy Secretary General for Political Affairs and Political Director of the European External Action Service (EEAS), held in Brussels between the political directors. The Russian diplomat also met EEAS Secretary General Helga Schmid.
The parties "discussed in detail the current state and prospects for interaction between Russia and the European Union focusing on the need to maintain dialogue on matters of mutual interest."
"The topics for discussion included settling the crises in Syria and Ukraine, combatting international terrorism and drug trafficking, talks on migration issues as well as problems existing in a number of industries," the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
"Despite a rough period in our relations, Russia wants to see the European Union as a united, stable and predictable partner with whom we would like to develop equal and mutually beneficial cooperation," Meshkov stressed.
In addition to that, the sides exchanged views on urgent international matters.
