Better relations with Russia a distant prospect, EU chief diplomat says

Reading Time: < 1 minute

There is not much hope for better relations between the European Union and Russia any time soon, the EU’s foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said on Wednesday, roughly a week before leaders of the 27 nation bloc are to discuss its future Russia policy.

“Under present circumstances, a renewed partnership between the EU and Russia, allowing for closer cooperation, seems a distant prospect,” Borrell said in a statement, commenting on a new report prepared by the European Commission on the bloc’s fraught relations with Russia.
