NEW YORK, January 25, /ITAR-TASS/. Barack Obama has been losing to Vladimir Putin on the world stage, Mitt Romney, who was a Republican candidate for presidency in the 2012 election, said on NBC News.
To substantiate for his conclusion, he cited the situation around Syria and the case of fugitive former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, whom Russia gave political asylum last August.
"We are, and I've said this before, geopolitical adversaries /with Russia/,” Romney said. "Not enemies but adversaries geopolitically. And Putin lines up with Assad and gave Assad the cover that he needed and won a diplomatic battle with regards to Syria."
He believes that Putin "likewise keeps Edward Snowden as a bit of a stick in the eye at America. And I think most observers of the international political scene suggest that Russia has elevated itself in stature and America has been diminished."
"I think Putin has outperformed our president time and time again on the world stage," Romney said.
He is giving a series of interviews now in connection with a new documentary that depicts his presidential campaign.
