BERLIN, 27 Aug — RIA Novosti. The European Union needs the good and confidential neighbourhood with Russia in the long term, despite different positions on this question of the certain states of the EU, the Foreign Minister of Germany Heiko Maas in Bucharest at a conference of heads of diplomatic missions of Romania abroad has said. © AFP 2018/Markus Schreiber "You Are on Friendly Terms with Russia — the USA Will Be Frightened". What slogans are popular with Germans "From the point of view of political prospect and historical experience one support more dialogue, others — a distance from Russia. But it seems to me important that we developed the culture of the general coordinated actions in east policy. Because the EU needs the long term in the good, confidential neighbourhood with Russia — for the benefit of own safety" — Maas has said, he is quoted by Press Service of the Foreign Ministry of Germany. The minister has added that all approaches to the relations with Russia need to be considered in "new European east policy". He has emphasized that it is not about "application of policy of times of Cold War in absolutely other realities of today's time". "We need mutual understanding between all members of the EU concerning the principles of the general reaction concerning our east neighbors" — Maas has told.
