VIENTIANE, September 7. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev who arrived in Laos to attend the 11th East Asia Summit had on-the-go conversation with U.S. President Barack Obama at the gala reception.
"The contact was on the go, informal," Medvedev’s press secretary Natalya Timakova told TASS.
The gala reception in honor of the heads of delegations of the ASEAN and East Asia summit meetings was given on Wednesday night by Laotian Prime Minister Thonglun Sisoulith.
Medvedev represents Russia at the East Asia Summit at President Vladimir Putin’s instruction. The format of these annual summits appeared in 2005 as a platform for discussions on regional strategic development among the leaders of regional countries.
