The chief of two powerful countries are going to meet each other very soon as the Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has recently set a date for meeting with his counter part newly elected US president, Barack Obama. Both presidents will get together on first April in London, on the eve of the G20 summit in London. Experts think that the meeting will melt the ice on the current relation between two countries.
Following a meeting with members of a US commission on Russian relations, Mr Medvedev said moves by US toward Russia had recently been very positive. Medvedev said although relations had deteriorated between the two powerful countries over the past several years, however, a new page in Russia-US relations is going to open due to positive signals from US president Barack Obama. Relations have been particularly frayed between two countries through differences over the 2008 Georgia war and missile defenses in Europe.
According to analysts Russia’s war in Georgia in August 2008 sent relations between Russia and the West plummeting to the lowest level not seen since the Cold War. Russia reacted furiously to plans by the former government of George W Bush to set missile facilities in Poland and the Czech Republic. The recent announcement from Moscow made a hope to develop the relation between two countries.
