Premier Minister of Slovakia Robert Fico called to lift sanctions imposed on the Russian Federation.
PM at the meeting with Putin expressed such opinion, according to his Facebook page.
He posted: "Personally, I think the time has come to look rationally at sanctions and to say they harm EU and Russia."
Fico also pointed out: "They brought absolutely nothing to solve sensitive issues on which they have to influence."
"We have agreed with Vladimir Putin to strengthen our efforts to intensify our trade," he added.
Earlier the president of the Czech Republic Miloš Zeman called to lift sanctions imposed on Russia as well.
