Russia and the European Union need a strategic alliance
Russia and the European Union need a strategic alliance, Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero said in an interview with Moscow-based Kommersant Daily on the eve of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s state visit to Spain, beginning February 8. “Russia is a strategic partner for the European Union, and my government helps Russia and Europe get much closer to each other,” he said. “I think we need a strategic alliance to embrace all aspects of nowadays world and to rebuff the serious challenges we’re faced with in the international arena,” Zapatero said. He recalled that the Russia-EU agreement on cooperation and partnership expires in 2007. “It must be replaced by a reliable instrument of some kind that would make relations between Russia and the EU stronger,” Zapatero said. “Spain will give assistance to signing any agreement that will bring the sides closer together,” he said.
