SOCHI, May 24 (Itar-Tass) - Russia and the US are preparing a number of decisions for the Putin-Obama talks due in Northern Ireland on June 17-18, but there are no agreements on missile defense among them, Kremlin aide Yuri Ushakov has said.
President Putin’s aide said the message of the Russian leader handed over to the US president this week contains “a number of proposals concerning practical measures that Putin expects to discuss with Obama”. According to him, a process is underway to coordinate a number of decisions that will be voiced after the summit talks.
This includes “the discussed formats for further political and trade-economic cooperation,” he said. “Missile defense will be surely discussed,” he said, adding however, that he believes it is unlikely that “an agreement on missile defense will be reached at the summit”.
