BAKU, August 13 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian president’s aide Yuri Ushakov is sure that there is no pause in Russian-American relations, and bilateral relations are so important that it is impossible to drive them into an impasse.
“It is better just to look at reality, and in reality contacts go on,” Ushakov told reporters, pointing out that the heads of the foreign policy and defence ministries of Russia and the United States met last week.
“Obama will go to the summit of the Group of Twenty, ministers meet, practical work between ministries goes on,” the presidential aide noted. “Whether or not Obama goes, relations are so important that they cannot be driven into an impasse,” he holds.
Ushakov disproved the supposition that Russia had not given the answer to the United States’ initiatives, specifically in the missile defence area, set out in Obama’s message to Putin that was presented in the spring of 2013. “Our stand on the missile defence, taking into account the new steps of the US administration was expressed more than once, and practically everything is known,” Ushakov said.
