MOSCOW, January 14. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev hopes that Moscow will be able to return relations with the European Union to normal soon.
“We very much appreciate the relations that we were building with Europe, our main trading partner. I do hope that in the near future we shall manage to normalize these relations,” Medvedev told the Gaidar Economic Forum in Moscow on Wednesday. “But the modern world is dictating the need for active measures regarding the entire spectrum of regional markets.”
Medvedev believes that achieving greater competitiveness of the Russian economy would be impossible without enhancing international ties.
“Globalization remains mainstream trend. Nevertheless this ‘avenue’ has its ‘side and spur roads.’
“Globalization is entering into a new phase, when the role of regional integration association will be soaring,” he added.
