Britain has expressed its willingness to "pragmatic cooperation" with Russia

UK will come to cooperate with Russia on the basis of "a practical point of view"; there are areas "where it makes sense to try to work together," said a representative of the office of the British Prime Minister, mentioning, in particular, the situation in Syria.

On the question of what exactly the scope of the British government considers promising for potential cooperation, the Office of the Representative said: "We are going to look at the course of events."

She recalled that in Britain there are differences with Russia, in particular, in matters of the Crimea and the situation in the South-East of Ukraine. "Britain had to take a firm position on these issues and continues to occupy it", - quotes its word of RIA "Novosti".

According to the British prime minister's chancellery, London intends to proceed from the interests of their own country and people, and will cooperate with Russia "where should".
