EU should make up its mind if it is ready for talks with Russia - Russian FM

Russia comments on the statement by Polish President Kazcynski

The European Union should make its mind at last whether it is prepared to conduct talks with Russia on a new partnership and cooperation agreement, the Russian Foreign Ministry said after the latest statement by Polish President Lech Kazcynski, Itar-Tass reports.

The Polish president said that Warsaw would lift its veto from the beginning of talks on a new partnership and cooperation agreement between Russia and the European Union only after Ukraine and Georgia had been allowed to join the NATO membership action plan.

“We proceed from the understanding that the agreement on partnership is necessary to Russia to a no greater degree than it is necessary to the EU,” sources at the Russian Foreign Ministry said. “It is up to the European Union to decide if it is ready to negotiate or not.”
