The report comes as France is due to take up the Union's Presidency on July 1. 

The document suggests that EU should moderate its relationship with Russia and associate with it in the Nabucco project. The French are themselves excluded from Nabucco negotiations due to Turkish pressures.

Nabucco executive director Reinhard Mitschek declared in an interview for that the parties involved would not exclude any source of gas thus implying that Russians could be a part of the project. At his turn, Gazprom deputy head Alexander Medvedev has declared for that he would be interested in a collaboration.
