MOSCOW, June 14. /TASS/. The European Union’s sanctions against Russia have not produced any result, Slovenian Foreign Minister Karl Erjavec said on Tuesday at talks with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov.
"Our goal is to reach a €2 billion trade turnover with Russia. As for sanctions, Slovenia has a very flexible policy in this issue," he said. "Sanctions in economic terms have not brought any sizable results to any side."
The Slovenian minister said the anti-Russian sanctions have not influenced the process of settling the Ukrainian crisis. "Sanctions are not a kind of a tool needed for solving this problem," he stressed.
Lavrov said earlier that Russia and Slovenia have a chance to overcome the negative trend in trade and boost it even in current conditions. "External environment influences exchanges, but the potential of cooperation is so that the volume can be increased also in current conditions," he said.
