Juncker acknowledged the need for restoration of Russia-EU relations

European Commission President Jean-Klod Yunker said that EU-Russia relations should be restored, saying that "the world needs cooperation and not confrontation - both in terms of economy and security, and in the geopolitical perspective."

"Even if at the present time, our relations are problematic and marked by distrust, that does not mean that they are destroyed. We have to restore them, and I think we can do it ", - said the head of the European Commission in an interview with the Romanian publication Adevarul, reports TASS.

"I am convinced that there is a common interest in improving our relations", - he added the politician.

Recall that in late April, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu at the opening of the sixth Moscow international security conference called on the EU to cease to frighten Russia and begin to build relationships.

We also add to the end of March, the Chancellor of Austria Christian Kern said that Brussels' relations with Moscow should not depend on Washington's position, the EU should pursue its own policy.
