UK Ministry of defense called for maintaining “lines of communication” with Russia



London advocated maintaining “lines of communication” with Moscow despite tensions between the two countries, said permanent Deputy Minister of defence of the United Kingdom Stephen Lovegrove. “I think we want to cooperate with Russia. It is important that communication lines remain open, that we understand how to develop their doctrine, and it has changed significantly,” said Lovegrove, speaking about the foreign policy and defense doctrine of Russia.

At the same time, Lovegrove said, a hundred United Kingdom has no plans to cancel anti-Russian sanctions, reports RIA “Novosti”.
Note that last week the British foreign Secretary Boris Johnson accepted the invitation of the foreign Minister of Russia Sergey Lavrov plans to visit Moscow in the coming weeks.
