Lavrov doubts cooperation with hostile EU agencies

MINSK (TASS): During a session of the Russian and Belarusian foreign ministries’ boards on Thursday, the nation’s top diplomat Sergey Lavrov questioned the feasibility of cooperation with EU agencies given the way they behave towards Russia these days.

“Rather than thinking about how to do business – in the usual or not the usual way – we, for our part, want to fundamentally understand whether there is any point whatsoever in dealing with the structures in Brussels if they continue operating the way that they do now,” the foreign minister said.

Relations with the EU are bumpy these days, he admitted. “The reason is both non-partner-like, and frequently the unfriendly behavior of some European Union countries that get the entire EU’s approval,” Lavrov pointed out.
