MOSCOW, May 4. /TASS/. A way out of the crisis in relations between Russia and the European Union should be sought through a dialogue, Austrian Minister for Foreign Affairs and Integration Sebastian Kurz said in an exclusive interview with TASS ahead of his working visit to Russia.
"No alternative to a dialogue exists for me," Kurz said. "To reach a path of negotiations is especially significant amid crises. It is principal for Austria and we call for it within the EU framework."
"There are some challenges so cooperation with Russia to solve them provides broad opportunities and becomes essential," the Austrian foreign minister said.
In March 2015, the European Council clearly defined the conditions for removing sanctions and demanded full implementation of the Minsk agreements.
"I call on the all parties to the conflict to work for achieving the goal, in close cooperation with the OSCE monitoring mission [Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe]," Kurz said.
