French president speaks for Russia-EU privileged partnership

French President Jacques Chirac has spoken in favour of Russia-EU privileged partnership.

When speaking at the Russia-EU summit, the French leader stated that Russia and the EU must cooperate in resolving regional crises including those in the Balkans and the Middle East. Besides, he believes the EU must support the programme of reforms in Russia.

According to Mr. Chirac, France also supports realisation of the long-term task to ensure free travelling of Russian citizens to the European Union and the other way round. Mr. Chirac believes this objective "agrees with our idea of a continent without any boundaries".

According to the French President, it will take time. "While waiting till all conditions for unhindered travelling are created we must find ways to simplify visa procedures for certain categories of citizens," Mr. Chirac believes.

According to him, these categories must include young people and especially students to simplify humanitarian, cultural and economic exchanges.
