In his opinion, Europe cannot be safe if it does not have a dialogue with Russia.

French President Emmanuel Macron announced his intention to hold a new telephone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the near future.

“Europe cannot be safe if it does not engage in dialogue with Russia. This is our history, our geography. Therefore, in the coming hours I intend to talk with President Putin again,” he said.

The French president said he was generally satisfied with the progress of negotiations with the Russian leader.

However, according to him, “it is necessary to continue” negotiations, since “every centimeter won matters.”
