NEW YORK, September 23. /TASS/. President Vladimir Putin believes that the creative approach typical of the Americans, openness and broadness of outlooks has made it possible for the US to reach impressive results in development. He said it in an interview with the US television anchorman Charlie Rose.
CBS published a fragment of the transcript at its website. The channel will air the full interview at the weekend or the beginning of next week.
Rose asked Putin if he was treating the US like all other countries or with more curiosity.
"Are you curious about America?" he asked. "More than simply another nation that you have to deal with?"
"Of course we're curious about what's going on," Putin answered. "America exerts enormous influence on the situation in the world as a whole.
When asked about what he admired most about America, Putin said he liked the creativity.
"Creativity when it comes to your tackling problems," he said by way of explaining for the situation. "Their openness and open-mindedness because it allows them (the Americans as a nation TASS) to unleash the inner potential of their people."
