Vladimir Putin: I hope that the discussion that this developing here will be of interest to you. You yourself presented what I think is quite an interesting vision of our present relations and the prospects our relations have for developing in the future – something that is very attractive and valuable.
Despite certain difficulties relations are developing and you were absolutely right when you said that many possibilities exist and that there is a mutual interest in developing these possibilities. I think that we have expressed this interest more than once. I hope that we will be able to leave all difficulties behind us and think about the future.
