This article explains that the European Parliament has voiced regrets that the recent European Union-Russia summit failed to strike a significant deal on energy co-operation. The parliament passed a motion stressing the strategic importance of an agreement, but said that EU ministers should not strike a deal at any price. An agreement should enshrine interdependence and transparency in EU-Russia energy relations, as well as reciprocity in terms of access to markets, infrastructure and investment.
