Mogherini: "I am in Moscow - it means that relations between the EU and Russia are not frozen"

35
European Commissioner for International Affairs Federica Mogherini, who visited Moscow, noted that her first visit to the Russian Federation in this position is a demonstration that relations between the European Union and Russia are not frozen. Having met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Mogherini touched on issues of EU interaction with the Russian Federation in several areas.

Mogherini: "I am in Moscow, which means that relations between the EU and Russia are not frozen"


Among such areas are Iran’s nuclear program, bilateral relations between the Russian Federation and the European Union, the situation in the Donbas, military and humanitarian crises in Syria, Libya, and Afghanistan.

During the negotiations, as reported RIA NewsMogherini said that the interaction with Russia on these issues will not lead to the abolition of anti-Russian sanctions imposed earlier against the Russian Federation. According to Mogherini, Moscow and Brussels cannot consider each other as strategic partners.

Mogherini:
We face common tasks related to the fight against terrorism. And I want to once again confirm our interest in this cooperation on such sensitive issues as the situation in Syria, Libya. Indeed, we have a wide range of issues for discussion. At the same time, it would be absurd to consider each other strategic partners and have mutual sanctions - this is not the kind of relationship that partners usually have.


The head of Russian diplomacy during the briefing told reporters that the topic of sanctions was not specifically discussed, but this issue “inevitably surfaced.”

At the same time, the issue of sanctions by Federica Mogherini was no longer tied to the Crimea, but to the implementation of the Minsk agreements.

As part of the talks, Sergey Lavrov asked the EU colleague about why so principled Brussels imposed sanctions solely on Russia, which de jure is not even a party to the Minsk agreements?

Russian Foreign Minister:
We strive to do our part in good faith, but, unfortunately, Kiev is moving away from direct dialogue with Donetsk and Lugansk, although this is recorded in black and white in Minsk documents. But, of course, if the position of the European Union is that everyone must fulfill their part of the obligations, then the question arises: why are sanctions only against Russia?


Following the meeting, the Russian Foreign Ministry noted that, despite the EU sanctions policy towards the Russian Federation, mutually beneficial cooperation will continue to build on the basis of an objective interconnection between economies and the territorial neighborhood.

    It is a logical question. But really, why? Ukraine also does not comply with Minsk, but no sanctions are introduced against it. Maybe then they would start to move.

    Well, you never know who comes to Moscow ... This does not mean that you need to kiss everyone in your gums. The Saudis have become so frequent, but it’s difficult to talk about normal relations with them.

      Why would this conjuncturist be a communist? She is a communist like Trump or Merkel. If it is profitable for her, she will be a fascist, convert to Islam, become a fighter for the rights of frogs in general, as circumstances arise.

    Was there any sense for our Foreign Ministry to organize a meeting between Lavrov and this “European chain” of empty-bones and a chatterbox ?! request She has absolutely no power and influence - she came to blow her cheeks, talked about anything, then at a banquet the freebie knocked over and to the house! Such as she, Chekhov called - "wedding general"! laughing

    I hope to see the day when the European ambassadors will be given 24 hours to collect things and leave the territory of the Russian Federation. Previously, a break in diplomatic relations would have already gone for such a roll, but now we are mumbled.

        To begin with, I would like our leadership to stop calling almost open enemies "partners" and begin to behave in accordance with this fact. The EU, the USA, Japan, Canada, Australia have adopted sanctions against us, so calling them "partners" looks very stupid of us.
        As for the nuclear strike, then everything is in their hands. If a crowd gets on us, we’ll have to blame them tightly.

    They ran in, Herods.
    "Iran’s nuclear program, bilateral relations between the Russian Federation and the European Union, the situation in the Donbass, military and humanitarian crises in Syria, Libya, Afghanistan." - they made a shame wherever possible, but now they ask the Russian Federation to clean them up, and at the same time they warn in advance: "Interactions with Russia on this issue will not lead to the lifting of the anti-Russian sanctions introduced earlier against the Russian Federation ....... Moscow and Brussels cannot consider each other as strategic partners. "
    Yes, they went ... forest with their conditions. let them rake their guano

    All this riffraff comes to Russia for one reason only: to create for the western inhabitants the appearance of “preventive contacts” which “of type” failed because of the intractable position of the “insidious” Moscow, before the start of yet another disgusting thing for Russia and waiting for just an excuse for it -making this muck then all these faces will say: "Well, you saw, we went to Russia, we tried ... but Russia does not hear us, so we have to do this and this ... but it’s all for the benefit of “world peace” ... Russia needs to be tamed more strongly as an “aggressor” and a “destroyer” of the existing “democratic” world order ... "

    "I'm in Moscow - that means the relations between the EU and Russia are not frozen"

    This is understandable. When you (the West) need something, or you are immediately running out to Moscow forgetting about the sanctions. As soon as Russia stabilizes something, then immediately new sanctions. The same international live-throats as the United States. but on the sidelines.

    In the country structure of foreign trade of the Russian Federation, the leading place is EU as the country's largest economic partner. In January 2017, the European Union accounted for 45,4% of Russian goods turnover (in January 2016 of the year - 41,7%), for the CIS countries - 11,4% (11,5%), for EurAsEC countries - 8,5% (8,5%), for APEC countries - 30,1% (32,4%).
    and if by "partners"
    The main trading partners of Russia in January 2017 of the year among non-CIS countries were: China, with which trade amounted to $ 6 billion (+ 57,7% to January 2016 of the year), Germany - $ 3,9 billion (+ 71,7%), the Netherlands - $ 2,8 billion ( + 36%), Italy - $ 1,7 billion (+ 33,7%), USA - $ 1,3 billion (+ 17,8%), Turkey - $ 1,3 billion (+ 1,3%), Japan - $ 1,2 billion (-5,6%), Poland - $ 1,1 billion (+ 78,1%), Republic of Korea - $ 1,1 billion (-6,5%), France - $ 1 billion (+ 60,7%

    Why does the Russian Federation have relations with the EU? Only to save on embassies. Having one embassy in Brussels instead of fifty embassies is right. Having fifty plus one more is wrong, plus hospitality. This Mogherini probably loves black caviar for vodka.

      “Relationships” are needed, probably in order not to simply die from hunger. 100% of our "milk" is made from powder produced in the EU, sprinkled with Indonesian palm oil ... So it is with beef and pork (70% percent from the EU). Almost all fish (80 percent of commercials) are processed in the EU and Norway ... Alcohol, the one that is not a “powder” and which you can drink and not die, is also from Europe, etc. All juices are from concentrate imported from Europe, etc. And go rumors that bread-strong varieties are exported from Russia, and cheap fodder is imported for domestic use, which are then used in bread-baking plants with various kinds of “bulking agents” brought back from the EU, etc. You can’t, of course, believe in “holy import substitution” ....

    Again brought the "ultimatum", but did not read? Or read? The GDP went to St. Petersburg just before the visit of this commissioner, so that our foreign minister would not bring her to meet him, as Rex had. This is empty talk, which is a waste of time for serious people. This bianca needs to go to London, and not to Moscow. Londoners want to take all of humanity hostage, while using their nuclear weapons. And how do commissars from Brussels feel about this? They seem to have 27 left. It’s good that it’s not 26, that’s not a good analogy. The British are they, not predictable.

    "Mogherini:" I am in Moscow, which means that relations between the EU and Russia are not frozen ""
    - The fact that Mogherini in Moscow does not mean ANYTHING at all. The main thing is whether the EU has become obedient to Russia.
