SEOUL, March 26 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said his talk with his U.S. counterpart Barack Obama was sincere.
“During my meeting with Barack Obama, we sincerely talked about missile defence and Syria,” Medvedev wrote in his Twitter blog on Monday.
Obama gave no comments on the meeting with Medvedev. The U.S. president has not been renovated his Facebook account since Sunday.
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.”
In addition, Medvedev and Obama discussed the situation in Syria. They provided support for the mission of U.N./LAS Special Envoy for Syria Kofi Annan in order to cease bloodshed in the country.
This was the last meeting between the presidents before the end of Medvedev’s tour of duty in May.
