Greek Premier Tsipras, Russian President Putin Reiterate Interest in Expanding Collaboration

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and Russian President Vladimir Putin focused on investments in a joint press conference they gave in Moscow on Wednesday, reiterating their intention to restart and expand bilateral relations.
Putin clarified that Athens had not raised any issue about economic help, while Tsipras sai that Greece "is not a pauper, making the rounds of countries to ask for a resolution to its financing problem, in a crisis that is more European than Greek."
The Russian leader recognised Greece's obligation to vote for EU's sanctions against Russia. He added that Russia cannot make exceptions for EU members in its embargo on imports, but a path could open facilitating trade between the two countries through joint Greek-Russian businesses.
Both leaders referred to sectors of interest for collaboration, such as Russian interest in ports, airports and energy projects, with Putin mentioning in particular the port of Thessaloniki, in which Russian Railroads are interested.
