EU, NATO not Russia’s enemies, Merkel says

The European Union and NATO are not Russia’s enemies, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said at a meeting with students of Tbilisi State University on Friday, which was broadcast live by several Georgian TV channels.

“Russia is an important country and Germany wants to have good relations with Russia. Europe and Russia have been effectively cooperating and learning from each other, and I would like to point out that the EU and NATO are not Russia’s enemies,” Merkel said
