Russia open for dialogue with EU in bilateral, multilateral formats
Russia is open for a dialogue with the EU member states in both bilateral and multilateral formats, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Tuesday, Sputnik International reported.
"We have not blocked any mechanism of negotiations, we are open for a dialogue in a bilateral, multilateral format," Zakharova told the Rossiya 24 TV channel in an interview.
Moscow may hold dialogues with any states and blocs, she noted. "We are ready for such initiatives. The most important is that they would not be blocked by the ‘big brother’ or ‘big brothers’ that are not focused on such partnership or constructive talks, discussion of constructive issues," Zakharova added.
