Russian PM: Moscow ready to cooperate with West

MOSCOW - 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."
