Mr Putin and Mr Bush continued the consultations started the day before and discussed a wide range of bilateral and international problems, including efforts against terrorism, the situation in the Middle East, Iraq, Afghanistan and the Korean Peninsula, the developments in the zones of interethnic conflicts between Moldova and Transdnestr, Georgia and Abkhazia, and in Nagorno-Karabakh.
Great attention was given to the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, in particular, the Iranian and North Korean nuclear programmes.
The Presidents also discussed the prospects for promoting a dialogue between Russia and NATO, strengthening trade and economic ties between Russia and the US, cooperation in the hi-tech, missile defence, health care, housing construction, energy, aviation and space research fields.
Mr Putin and Mr Bush agreed to maintain regular contacts and gave instructions to the relevant government departments to work for the practical implementation of the broad programme of bilateral cooperation mapped out during the negotiations.
The Presidents gave a joint statement on the results of their summit and met with journalists.
At the press conference, President Putin said, in part, that the summit at Camp David demonstrated once again that the leaders of Russia and the US are fully aware of a special responsibility shouldered by them for safeguarding international security and strengthening global stability.
The Russian leader noted with satisfaction that the partnership between Russia and the US is immune to political considerations and, despite all difficulties, rests on the principles of trust, openness and respect for each other’s interests.
Mr Putin expressed hope that the multi-faceted Russian-American cooperation will continue to develop in the future and will bring practical results for the benefit of the two nations.
