SOCHI, May 13 (Itar-Tass) - A letter of response from Russian President Vladimir Putin to his U.S. counterpart Barack Obama is not ready yet, Secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolai Patrushev told reporters on Monday.
“When a letter is ready, then a visit will be paid, but it is not ready yet,” Patrushev said, refusing to make public a possible date for his visit in the United States for the passing of the presidential letter.
The secretary of the Russian Security Council noted that his visit “envisages not only the handover of the letter, but also consultations with the U.S. National Security Council, and first of all with U.S. National Security Adviser in the Obama Administration Thomas Donilon.”
“The United States found it necessary to send a letter to the Russian president,” Patrushev said. “It is logical that we give the response,” he said. Meanwhile, Patrushev hopes that more frequent bilateral meetings (of the leaders) will be held in the future.
