Sebastian Kurz, the Chancellor of Austria, stated that regardless of Putin’s visit to the wedding of Austria’s Foreign Minister, the police of his state towards Russia would not change, as Reuters reports.

“Our position in Europe did not change because of a wedding. Our foreign policy towards Russia is clear... We helped shape and are committed to all the European Union’s decisions,” Kurz said.

However, Kurz added that he hoped to improve the relations with Russia through more intensive dialogue.

“Austria holds the EU’s rotating six-month presidency until the end of the year and is expected to speak on behalf of the whole 28-nation bloc,” the news agency reads.

Earlier, last week Putin danced with Karin Kneissl, Austria's Foreign Minister, at her wedding.
