Putin agrees with calls for more EU, Russia dialogue - Kremlin

Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitry Peskov remarked on Thursday that Russian President Vladimir Putin supported the calls for "creating a mechanism" for more "dialogue and contacts" between Moscow and the European Union.

The remarks come in response to the reports France and Germany are seeking an improvement in the relations between the EU and Russia. Peskov went on to confirm that German Chancellor Angela Merkel proposed a summit on the matter Brussels and Moscow would participate in together.

Earlier, the Kremlin dismissed the bloc's newly adopted approach to Russia based on the principles of "counteract, contain, interact" as "medieval."
