to maintain dialogue between the EU and Russia, so that no new boundaries are created in Europe and the new denition of the relationships between Europe and Russia is based on cooperation and partnership.
uring the Fifth Forum in Bucharest, Raian Basescu, President of Romania, said that presently we need a reasonable assessment, consultancy and di- scussion. Such actions as the Europe-Russia Forum help governments ma- intain substantial dialogue. The European Union is an area of well-being and peace, an area of free economy and freedom of movement. Adalbi Shagoshev, a member of the Russian State Duma, stated that Russia and Europe are connected and cannot exist separately. We must build strategic cooperation, because our people want to see a dierent kind of the foreign policy. It is worth focusing on the regionalisation of cooperation, as dialogue is missing at the regional level.We want to jointly impro- ve the standard of living of our citizens, and for this purpose we need cooperation. Russia wants this dialogue and this is why we are looking for partners in the Euro- pean Union. D
