US to continue reset relations with RussiaSeptember 25th, 2011 - 3:08 am ICT by IANS
Washington, Sep 25 (IANS/RIA Novosti) The US will continue to build on the progress of the reset of the relations with Russia regardless of who becomes the next Russian president, the White House said Saturday.
Earlier in the day, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev proposed Prime Minister Vladimir Putin to run for president in next year’s election, ending months of speculation over which man would run for the post.
“The question of who will be the next Russian president should be for the Russian people to determine,” said White House spokesman Tommy Vietor, after Vladimir Putin’s declaration of his plan to reclaim the presidency at March elections.
“While we have had a very strong working relationship with President Medvedev, it’s worth noting that Vladimir Putin was prime minister throughout the reset,” Vietor said.
“We will continue to build on the progress of the reset whoever serves as the next president of Russia, because we believe that it is in the mutual interests of the United States and Russia and the world.”
