WASHINGTON, August 1 (Itar-Tass) - The White House is “evaluating the utility” of a planned autumn summit meeting of US President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin, White House spokesman Jay Carney said on Thursday.
The Obama administration is disappointed in Russia’s decision to grant temporary asylum to NSA leaker Edward Snowden and President Barack Obama may forego the summit, he said.
He also said it is not a positive development for bilateral relations and the move undermines Russia’s record of law enforcement cooperation with the United States.
