MOSCOW, September 29. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Barack Obama at talks on Monday reached no accord on any "specific steps," but agreed to continue cooperation and talks between the foreign and defense ministers of the two countries, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has said.
"This was a very constructive discussion, we failed to agree on any specific steps, but we agreed to continue cooperation and the talks between the foreign and defence ministers to achieve our common goal," Lavrov said in an interview with RT.
Putin said that the 90-minute meeting with Obama on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly on Monday was frank and showed that the two sides can work together on common problems.
"Today's discussion, as I have already said, was very meaningful, formal and surprisingly very frank," the Russian leader told reporters. "We found a lot in common, but there are differences," Putin said, adding that these differences are well known.
"But in my opinion it is necessary to have the opportunity to work together on common problems," Putin concluded.
