Tefft: agreement on the meeting of Putin and Obama don’t have


At the moment arrangements for the meeting between the presidents of Russia and USA Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama there, said U.S. Ambassador to Russia John Tefft, stressing that much depends on the resolution of controversial issues of Ukraine and Syria.

MOSCOW, 28 Jan. Agreement on the meeting of presidents of Russia and USA Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama no, it depends on the progress on contentious issues, said in an interview with Russian news agencies US Ambassador to Russia John Tefft.

“There is no agreement at the moment, as far as I know. Much depends on the resolution of specific issues, such as Ukraine and Syria. We saw, for example, in Antalya at the summit of “Big twenty” was held unscheduled meeting… the Presidents talked with each other for almost half an hour. And at the Paris climate conference they held another meeting. I think the main thing is not to schedule meetings just for the sake of meetings, and try to promote and address the issues that divide us,” — said the Ambassador.
