MOSCOW, August 20. /TASS/. French President Emmanuel Macron has pointed to headway made in cooperation with Russia on political and economic issues, writing a post in Russian on his Facebook page after talks with President Vladimir Putin.
"Russia is a deeply European country," Macron posted in Russian. "We believe in a Europe stretching from Lisbon to Vladivostok. We see progress on many political or economic issues, because we are working on bolstering French-Russian relations," he explained.
"I am confident that by taking this path of a multifaceted rearrangement, we are going to build a framework of security and trust between the European Union and Russia," the French leader assured.
Monday’s talks between the Russian and French heads of state lasted over two and a half hours.
