PRAGUE, August 24. /TASS/. Prime Minister of Slovakia Robert Fico will pay a brief visit to Moscow on Thursday to discuss prospects for mending relations between Russia and the European Union, where Slovakia currently holds the rotating presidency, Slovak radio said on Tuesday.
"The prime minister will dine in Moscow on Thursday with Russian President Vladimir Putin," it said, noting this was information from the prime minister, who did not give further details.
As expected, their conversation will focus "on prospects for improving relations between the EU and Russia, complicated by sanctions".
In earlier remarks, Fico said his government was interested in reviewing the existing situation in relations between the EU and Russia. Slovakia seeks to see partnership and mutually advantageous cooperation between the EU and Russia restored in full.
Following the incorporation of Crimea after last year’s coup in Ukraine, Moscow came under sanctions on from the United States and many European countries. The restrictive measures were soon ramped up following Western and Ukrainian claims that Russia was supporting the militias in self-proclaimed republics of Ukraine’s southeast and was involved in the destabilization of Ukraine.
