NOVOGORSK, July 19 (Itar-Tass) - Russia hopes the situation around NSA leaker Edward Snowden will not tell on Russia’s relations with the United States, Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov told journalists on Friday.
“We sincerely hope that this situation will not tell on our bilateral relations,” he noted. “We know that some media allege, referring to anonymous sources, that the visit by the United States president might be cancelled. However we have no official information proving these allegations.”
According to Peskov, Russia has received no notification from the U.S. partners about changes in their plans. “So, regular routine work is underway to prepare this visit,” he stressed.
