LOS CABOS, June 19 (Itar-Tass) — Russian-U.S. Presidential Commission has gotten a subordinate unit – a workgroup for cooperation in defense technologies.
Presidents Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama announced its setting up upon the results of their meeting, which took place at the Mexican seaside resort of Los Cabos Monday.
As a result, the number of workgroups subordinated to the commission has risen to twenty-one. The military sphere of the commission’s activity already had to previously set up groups – the one in charge of defense relations and the other one for military cooperation.
In the run-up to the Putin-Obama talks, analysts said one more group might be added to the intergovernmental commission. It was supposed to take charge of the problems of information security.
However, the statement issued by the two presidents does not say anything about it.
