Macron reiterates the need to resume political dialogue with Russia

French President Emmanuel Macron continues to stress the need to resume political dialogue with Russia.

He stated this at a press conference following a meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in Paris on Thursday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“The world has changed. The Warsaw Pact ended. Therefore, we are rethinking an important strategy. And we are talking about the resumption of dialogue with Russia. I want to give an impetus to this dialogue,” the French leader said.

In his opinion, the restoration of cooperation with the Russian Federation will contribute to security in Europe.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg met with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris on Thursday, November 28, for a strategic discussion on strengthening the Alliance.
