German government says about prerequisite for free trade with Eurasian Union

A prerequisite for the possible creation of a common economic space between the EU and the Eurasian Economic Union should become implementation of the Minsk agreements to settle conflict in Ukraine.
This has been stressed by Vice Chancellor and minister for economy and energy of Germany Sigmar Gabriel, speaking on Thursday in the German Bundestag, an Ukrinform correspondent reports from Berlin.
“The path to a new breakthrough in EU-Russian relations, such as the path to a free trade zone between Lisbon and Vladivostok runs through Minsk and the agreements approved there to stop the armed intervention in Ukraine,” he said.
According to the Vice Chancellor, “no one in Europe is interested in strengthening sanctions against Russia, and the world needs Russia as a partner to resolve global conflicts and challenges.”
Sigmar Gabriel emphasized that “there is no alternative” to a return to the provisions stipulated in the Helsinki Final Act of 1975, namely the principle of inviolability of borders and non-violence.
