UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) –┬áThe European Union reaffirms its readiness to cooperate with Russia on a number of international issues, including the Arctic, a nuclear deal with Iran and the fight against terrorism, said EU diplomat Federica Mogherini at a news conference after the Council of Foreign Ministers of the EU countries on Monday.

Earlier, the European Union began a policy of selective cooperation with Russia in those areas where it believes that this is in the interests of the EU itself, she recalled.

“The EU countries agreed that this principle is still fair, we need to continue to apply it, mainly in the areas of foreign and security policy.” I mentioned the nuclear deal with Iran, I can mention the process of the Middle East settlement …, all global issues such as climate change, the environment, migration, counter-terrorism or cooperation in the Arctic, “Magerini said.
