MOSCOW, November 8 (Itar-Tass) - Russia-EU summit, due in the territory of the European Union, has been postponed from December to the end of January 2014, Russian presidential aide Yuri Ushakov told the media on Friday.
He recalled that summit meetings of Russia and the EU were held every six months interchangeably in Russia and in Europe.
“At the moment, it is our Brussels counterparts’ turn to host the summit," Ushakov said. “They have asked us to postpone the consultations till January. We have already agreed a date at the end of January.”
Ushakov said the European counterparts’ request was connected with the Christmas holiday season in Europe.
It was reported earlier that a wide range of issues was to be discussed at the upcoming summit in Brussels, including the conditions of signing an agreement on easing the visa regimen between the EU and Russia.
