OULU /Finland/, October 1. /TASS/. Finland considers Russia as one of its most important partners, despite the complicated international situation, Finnish Foreign Minister Erkki Tuomioja said on Tuesday.
“Growing tensions /in international relations/ doesn’t change the fact that Russia has always been and will always be Finland’s neighbor and major partner,” he said at a ceremony on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the Finland-Russia Society. That is why, in his words, it is important for Finland to maintain cooperation with Russia, which has become efficient and diversified.
“We don’t want to harm cooperation we have with border regions, with regional organizations. We don’t want to see Russia straying away from the European family and chilling its relations with it,” he stressed.
