UNITED NATIONS, September 29. /TASS/. Russia and Europe should resume dialogue, which is in the interests of both sides, Hungary’s Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto told TASS on Tuesday.
The current crisis in the relations between Russia and the European Union "is seriously damaging not only Russia but Europe as well," he said.
"I think dialogue is needed because it is in the interests of both Russia and Europe. We must resume pragrmatic relations based on mutual respect to international law," the Hungarian diplomat said, adding that a preliminary condition for normalizing relations was "Russia’s implementation of the Minsk agreements."
He admitted that his position was not shared by many in Europe and did not rule out he might come under criticism for that.
