Putin: EU 'must not create new dividing lines'

From putinru.com:

"EU expansion is part of a natural world process of integration and globalization. That's why we treat this process rather positively. But, quite naturally, we proceed from the fact that during these processes, during EU enlargement, new dividing lines in Europe, new virtual 'Berlin walls' should not be created," said the head of the Russian state.

The president said the negotiating process with the EU had been difficult. Russia was concerned about how the EU enlargement would tell on traditional trade and economic ties of the Russian Federation with partners in Central and Eastern Europe.
