BRUSSELS, November 17. /TASS/. A Moscow visit by European Union’s foreign policy chief Federica Mogherinin needs thorough preparation, since it will cover the entire range of relations between the European Union and Russia, Russian’s Permanent Representative at the European Union said on Monday.
He also said he planned to meet with Mogherini in the next few days.
After the Monday’s meeting of the European Union’s foreign ministers, Mogherini told journalists that the issue of her possible visit to Moscow had been raised by several ministers. Such visit, in her words, needed thorough preparation and a final decision had not yet been taken. However, she said she was planning to go to Kiev as soon as a new government was formed.
“IT is much easier to visit Kiev, there is only one topic to dwell on - the crisis in Ukraine. But in Moscow, she will have to speak on a wide range of issues of relations between Russia and the European Union,” Chizhov said. “Such a visit does need thorough preparation, so I can understand her position.”
He noted that the European Union foreign policy chief will need an invitation.
“The next meeting of the permanent partnership council at the level of foreign ministers is to be held in Moscow. When they are ripe for such an event, the issue will be tackled from the practical point of view. So far, there is no such invitation,” the Russian diplomat said. “But contacts are in place and we have sent her our greetings. I plan to meet with her in the nearest future.”
