    BERLIN, February 23, 2004. (RIA Novosti correspondent Alexander Polotsky) - No cardinal changes are to be expected in Russia's foreign policy in the near future, said Mikhail Margelov, chairman of the Federation Council's committee for international affairs.

    "The changes that took place in Russia's foreign policy during the first term of Vladimir Putin's presidency are so significant that no new cardinal changes should be expected in the foreseeable period of time," Margelov said, addressing the international conference, "Foreign Policy Aims and Challenges for Russia and the European Union," on Monday in Berlin.

    In the opinion of the senator, these changes concerned, above all, the relations with the United States after September 11, 2001 and, "consequently, all other trends of the Russian foreign policy."
