Putin Does Not Exclude Russia's Integration Into Europe
Russian President Vladimir Putin said Sunday that Russia's relations with Europe could take on a "character of integration" at some stage in the future.
Putin made his comments during an interview televised in Moscow late Sunday on public RTR television.
He was expected to arrive Sunday in Paris for his first visit to France as Russian president, with Monday's summit meeting with the European Union, of which France is currently president, the centerpiece of the visit -- MOSCOW (AFP)
