ATHENS, April 7. /TASS/. The visit to Moscow due on April 8 is expected to lay the new foundation for the Russian-Greek relations, Greece’s Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said in an exclusive interview with TASS First Deputy Director General Mikhail Gusman on Tuesday.

"This is a possibility for their true reset and for giving a new impetus to the Russian-Greek relations which have very deep roots in history and were hammered out in a joint struggle of our nations," Tsipras said.

The prime minister noted that over the past years the relations with Russia have been frozen: "I do not know if this is like the Siberian winter, but this was winter and now we are having spring and should support this spring for the real development of our relations," he said.

"We are in a geopolitical environment of special tensions and have common challenges, and we need to look at how we treat them," the prime minister said.

"We should see how our nations and countries can really cooperate in many spheres — economy, energy, trade, agriculture, and find out where we can help each other and, first of all, look into how our cooperation can be constructive as I indeed believe that Greece, as a member of the EU, can be a link and a bridge between the West and Russia," he said.
