The President of Finland urged to continue to cooperate with Russia.

Finnish President Sauli Niinistö considers it important to continue cooperation with Russia.

“We must continue to cooperate, if only because we have a common border that is more than a thousand kilometers long,” Niinistö said on Sunday’s YLE radio station, where he answered questions from citizens.

He referred to the almost daily administrative cooperation in the border zone of the two countries.

It will take time to restore trust, he said.

“Let’s see when the situation clears up. It is quite possible that not during my tenure as president,” he said.
Niinistö’s term ends in 2024.
