Without the cooperation of the countries of Europe, the USA and Russia there is no stability in other regions, said the former Federal Chancellor of Germany Gerhard Schroeder.

«I am convinced that in the long term we need to improve relations with Russia. Russia is not only a partner for trade, the supply of energy, but much more important: without cooperation with Russia there is no stability in Eastern Europe, Central Asia, the Caucasus, the middle East and North Africa,» said Schroeder at the opening of the exhibition of the artist Susan Swartz in St. Petersburg.

According to him, stability in these regions can be achieved not through confrontation and sanctions, and as a result of cooperation.

Schroeder expressed confidence that the opening of the exhibition of the American artist will become a «contribution to the development of friendship between the United States and Russia.»

Relations between Moscow and the West deteriorated in connection with the situation in Ukraine. In 2014, the European Union and the US imposed sanctions against Russia, which then rapidly expanded. Moscow has taken retaliatory measures.Schroeder said that stability in Europe is impossible without Russia© RIA Novosti, Infografiken sanctions against Russia and retaliatory measures
