PETERSBURG, May 28. /TASS/. After the restoration of dialogue Russia and the European Union will have a new type of relationship, Russia’s permanent representative to the EU Vladimir Chizhov told reporters on Thursday at the 5th St. Petersburg International Legal Forum.

"Not tomorrow, not next week, but gradually we will be return to normal relations," he said. "This will be a new type of relationship, substantive interaction with less slogans with the Western countries and the EU."

Commenting on the current situation in Europe, Chizhov said: "The talk of the change of the anti-Russian policy for the pro-Russian course would be premature and an exaggeration." "We seek not this," the diplomat said. "We seek respect for the legitimate rights of the Russian Federation which are not contrary to the EU and US fundamental interests. In this field we are ready to compromise to the extent our partners are ready."

Chizhov said that "despite the stories about the so-called isolation of Russia, I can say that there are no grounds for this, and we don’t feel it in our practical work." "Given all the toughness of the policy, I think that common sense is gradually starting to prevail," said the official.
