    Russian President Vladimir Putin has proposed the creation of a economic and humanitarian cooperation zone stretching from the Atlantic to the Pacific.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian President Vladimir Putin has proposed the creation of a zone of economic and humanitarian cooperation stretching from the Atlantic to the Pacific that will be built on the basis of "equal and indivisible security."

    "I am convinced that we should draw appropriate conclusions from the events in Ukraine and proceed to establishing, in the vast space stretching between the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans, a zone of economic and humanitarian cooperation based on the architecture of equal and indivisible security. Harmonizing European and Eurasian integration processes would be an important step in this direction," Putin said in an article published in Greek newspaper Kathimerini ahead of his visit to Greece on May 27-28.

    The planned trip would be fourth for Putin, after visits in 2001, 2006 and in 2007.
