NEW YORK, August 7 (Itar-Tass) - President of the United States Barack Obama has confirmed his participation in the Group of Twenty Summit in Russia’s St. Petersburg. He told this in an interview with NBC on Tuesday.
U.S. President also expressed his dissapointment over asylum granted by Russia to former CIA employee Edward Snowden. However, he doesn't see any obstacles in further development of relations between Russia and U.S.
“There have been times where they slip back into Cold War thinking and Cold War mentality,” Obama said. - “What I continually say to them and to President Putin is that’s the past and... we've got to think about the future. And there's no reason why we shouldn't be able to cooperate more effectively than we do."
Meanwhile, it remains unclear whether the two leaders - Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin - will meet one-on-one during the G20 Leaders Summit.
The G20 Leaders Summit will be held September 5-6 in St. Petersburg under Russia's presidency. It's an international cooperation forum, where national leaders discuss the most important international economic and financial issues.
