SEOUL, March 26 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said his talk with his U.S. counterpart Barack Obama was sincere.

During the meeting, the presidents of the two countries stated that the time for the talks on missile defence had not been missed although the positions of both parties remained unchanged. Moscow and Washington understand, “The dialogue on this topic is not only possible but indispensable.”
