Close cooperation with Russia is the only way to resolve major problems the world’s nations are facing these days, former German foreign minister Hans-Dietrich Genscher said on Thursday.

“Global and European challenges can only be solved by working together with Russia and certainly not against our major partner in Europe,” Hans-Dietrich Genscher said while addressing participants of a conference marking the 70th anniversary of the 1945 Potsdam Agreement, which opened outside Berlin on Thursday.

Genscher, who served as German foreign minister from 1974 to 1992, called for an active “reset” of the European Union with a focus on making it ready for the political challenges it might face in the coming years.

The Potsdam Agreement was the agreement between three WW II Allies, the Soviet Union, Britain and the United States, for the post-war military occupation and reconstruction of Germany.
