The regular 25th bi-annual Russia-EU summit will discuss the issue of Kosovo as well, the Kremlin press service announced.
The summit will be held in Rostov-on-Don, Russia, on Monday and Tuesday.
Both Russia and the EU are interested in reducing the number of crisis areas in the world, Moscow stressed, adding that better coordination is often required in the practical approach to issues such as Kosovo, or conflicts in the region of the former Soviet Union.
The two sides are continuing their joint efforts at finding mutually acceptable solutions that would work for the interests of both the parties involved and the European safety as a whole, the Kremlin statement read.
This year’s bi-annual summit in administrative center of Rostov Oblast is the first of the kind ever since the Treaty of Lisbon came into force in 2009, the statement stressed.
At the conference, the Russian delegation will be headed by President Dmitry Medvedev, while the President of the European Council Herman Van Rompuy and the President of the Eropean Commission Jose Manuel Barroso will represent the European Union.
