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.

“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.
