Merkel: EU should follow Biden's example in dialogue with Russia




The European Union should maintain an open dialogue with Russia, as the United States does, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Friday at a press conference with French President Emmanuel Macron.





“Just at the G7 meeting, relations with Russia were an important issue. It is a serious challenge for us, but it is also the EU's largest continental neighbor. But, on the other hand, we are strongly interested in security and stability in the EU, so we will remain in dialogue with Russia, no matter how difficult it may be,” Merkel said.

“And I think that if US President Joe Biden meets with Russian President Vladimir Putin and maintains an open dialogue with him, then it is fair that we on the European side should do this,” she stressed.

Earlier it was reported that the leaders of the Group of Seven (G7) are in favor of stable and predictable relations with Russia but call on Moscow to stop the behavior that they consider destabilizing.
