HELSINKI (Reuters) – The European Union needs strategic relationships including in defense matters with its closest neighbours to ensure greater stability, and should modernise its post-Cold War relations with Russia, French President Emmanuel Macron said on Thursday.

“It is in our interest for the EU to have a strategic relationship with Turkey as well as with Russia that brings stability, that will in the long term and bring more strength and coherency,” Macron said in a press conference in Helsinki alongside his Finnish counterpart.
