MOSCOW, October 26 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Presidential Administration Chief of Staff Sergei Ivanov met on Saturday with former U.S. secretary of state Henry Kissinger, who had arrived in Russia. They discussed developing Russian-U.S. relations.
"I cannot say Russian-American relations are developing very smoothly and steadily, but all the same the latest meeting of our presidents in St. Petersburg showed that if to approach very complex problems constructively, even with disagreements, a compromise solution can be found," Ivanov said.
He said he met with U.S. First Deputy Secretary of State William Burns last week to discuss prospects for development of bilateral cooperation.
Kissinger noted Russia's role in world processes. Stable relations between Russia and the United States are a key factor of stability and peace in the world, he noted. He believes all disagreements between national interests always can be overcome. The United States also believes the direct talks between the two presidents are a very good precedent and a very good way to development of relations. It plays a very important role to maintain peace and stability, the former secretary of state said.
