MOSCOW, November 18. /TASS/. Russia hopes cooperation with Germany in formats like the Heidelberg initiative will be resumed, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday after talks with his German counterpart Frank-Walter Steinmeier.
“We highly appreciate Germany’s initiatives promoting the development of our relations,” he said. “One of them is the Heidelberg initiative put forth by Chancellor Angela Merkel. It calls to consider various conflicts that might pose [problems for the European Union and Russia.”
“It is not our fault, neither is it Germany’s fault that this initiative has not gone through a grading screen of the European Union’s procedures,” the Russian minister said. “I hope when dust settles and passions calm down, we will resume something of this kind with Germany.
