Russia PM:Ready to Cooperate with West 09/19 06:51

   Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev says Russia is ready to cooperate with the 
West despite efforts to isolate Moscow with economic sanctions.

   MOSCOW (AP) -- Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev says Russia is ready to 
cooperate with the West despite efforts to isolate Moscow with economic 
sanctions.

   The United States and the European Union last week imposed a new round of 
sanctions against Russia for its support for pro-Russian separatists fighting 
government troops in eastern Ukraine.

   Russia in August introduced an import food ban against some foodstuffs from 
the EU and the U.S.

   Speaking Friday at an investment conference in Sochi, the host city of the 
2014 Winter Games, Medvedev said the West behaves as if they do not acknowledge 
that Russia has national interests.

   But he added that Russia is willing to resume cooperation "as long as they 
learn again to listen to our position."
