Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the 20-minute meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Barack Obama wasn’t a breakthrough, but the talks were constructive.
“You know, it is probably absolutely unrealistic to expect that a 20-minute meeting could bring about a breakthrough in bilateral relations. Bilateral relations are just what they are. Differences are just what they are. And at the same time, let’s say, the understanding of no other alternative to bilateral dialogue even for the sake of discussing current issues, is just what it is,” RIA Novosti cited Peskov as saying.
