Patrushev Delivered Putin Reply to Obama – Russian Embassy
Published 23-05-2013, 06:49
Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev on Wednesday handed over a letter from President Vladimir Putin to US President Barack Obama, the Russian Embassy in the United States said.

The letter is a response to Obama’s message that US National Security Advisor Tom Donilon brought to Moscow in April. Obama’s message has not been made public, but Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov said last month it contained a number of proposals to deepen bilateral dialogue and cooperation, including on missile defense, and to expand economic ties.

"Nikolai Patrushev has delivered Vladimir Putin’s reply to the US president, which outlines his vision of the current state and prospects of bilateral relations in various areas,” the embassy press service said.

The Russian security chief is currently on an official visit to the United States. Obama briefly joined a meeting between Patrushev and Donilon in Washington on Wednesday.

During the meeting, the US president reaffirmed his desire to strengthen the bilateral relationship with Russia and said he was looking forward to seeing President Putin in June at the G-8 Summit.
