HANOI, November 7 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev considers U.S. President-elect Barack Obama predictable partner for the country.
“I’m glad that the biggest and powerful state in the world will be governed by a person who does not consider Russia geopolitical enemy number one,” Medvedev told journalists on Wednesday. The Russian prime minister congratulated Obama on winning the presidential elections.
“I believe that he [Obama] is a successful president. He led the country during the crisis. Thus, he should not re-build the mechanism,” the Russian prime minister said.
“He is a predictable partner for Russia,” he added.
“I don’t conceal that much depends in our country on the U.S. economic situation. Whether we like it or not, whether we are kind to Americans or not, any Russian family depends on how the dollar is valued,” he said.
Medvedev recalled that he maintained good relationship with Obama. “We started ‘resetting’ relations. It succeeded a little.” He stressed that Russia and the United States “managed to achieve good results. I hope that we will have normal relations with [Barack] Obama. It is also important for the situation all round the world”.
