WASHINGTON, August 6 (Itar-Tass) - U.S. - Russian negotiations in the “two plus two” format, in which the heads of the foreign policy and defense agencies will participate, will take place in Washington on August 9 as planned, a U.S. administration source told journalists on Tuesday.
Late last week, the United States said that it was studying the expediency of holding talks in the “two plus two” format with Russia following its decision to grant temporary asylum to Edward Snowden.
The Russian Foreign Ministry announced on July 3 that negotiations in the “two plus two” format were scheduled to take place in Washington on August 9. Both sides used that format to hold talks with each other under the administration of George Bush Jr.
