    Greek Prime Minister stated that EU sanctions against Russia and Moscow's reciprocal restrictions against EU countries affect cooperation between Russia and Greece.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) EU sanctions against Russia and Moscow's reciprocal restrictions against EU countries affect cooperation between Russia and Greece, but positive results must be sought in several sectors, including energy, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras told Sputnik.

    "EU sanctions and Russian counter-sanctions harm our trade, but we are convinced that there are sectors, such as investments in infrastructure, transport and ports, as well as energy and tourism, where we must focus our efforts in order to achieve substantial results," Tsipras said.
