Russian Foreign Minister For Expanding Dialogue With EU

Russian Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov advocates expansion of a dialogue with the European Union /EU/. Ivanov said that the EU is Russia's natural and rather promising partner. In his words, the dialogue with the EU is the more important what with the current trends in the European integration. At the same time, the minister stated the European countries have no clear idea of what the security model on the continent will be like in 10-15 years. Meanwhile, in Ivanov's words, the future role of such organisations as the OSCE /Organisation of the Security and Cooperation in Europe/, EU and NATO /North-Atlantic Treaty Organisation/ will largely depend on it.
