The G8 is unable to make decisions on global issues, the Russian PM stated.
Axar.az reports citing TASS that relations between Russia and the EU are "at zero level" and they need to be recovered without any preconditions, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev stated on the outcomes of the talks with his Slovenian colleague Marjan Sarec.
"The relations between Russia and the European Union are currently "at zero level." Of course, we can survive without them, developing bilateral relations, namely with our friends from Slovenia and with many other European countries, however, this is not normal," Medvedev said. "We shall see whether the new leadership of the European Commission implements any measures to normalize them, but there should not be any preconditions," the Russian PM stressed.
Medvedev recalled that Moscow did not initiate the deterioration of relations between Russia and the EU. "We were not the ones to destroy them [relations], and we should not be the ones to recover them. If they want to recover them, we will do it," he stated. "I have reiterated this to the current leadership of the EU because without [the relations], it is difficult to have full-fledged dialogue," the Russian head of government said.
