MOSCOW, September 25. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has been working for over a month at the text of his speech at the United Nations, the presidential spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, told reporters on Friday.
"The speech has been honed for about a month," Peskov said. "The president outlines main topics and then speechwriters and experts put them on paper in the first approach. Later on, the president himself works on the text, everybody will like."
When asked whether the one-day trip to New York, where the president will make a speech at the UN General Assembly session and meet with other leaders, including US President Barack Obama, would be physically difficult for Putin, Peskov replied: "Putin has had a schedule which is rather physically tough," confirming the trip would last one day.
