France opposed a return to the Cold War with Russia

“We & nbsp; do not & nbsp; want to go back to the Cold War. To avoid this, we & nbsp; do not & nbsp; must go to the & nbsp; aggravation and & nbsp; must remain calm. We & nbsp; want to maintain a dialogue with & nbsp; Russia, as initiated by the President of the Republic [Emmanuel Macron] in & nbsp; 2019. We & nbsp; conduct a frank and & nbsp; direct dialogue with & nbsp; the Russian side, because & nbsp; we & nbsp; must be able to talk to each & nbsp; other & raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; the head of the department explained.

According to & nbsp; her words, Russia is under sanctions, which at any moment can be toughened and & nbsp; thereby politically isolate the country. But & nbsp; this is not & nbsp; is an end in itself of Western states, which seek to “ dissuade '' Moscow from & nbsp; actions capable of “ triggering a dramatic chain of events. ''

Earlier, on the & nbsp; pages of this & nbsp; & nbsp; newspaper, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg spoke out against the idea of ​​holding a new conference with & nbsp; Russia on & nbsp; spheres of influence.
