Medvedev pins U.S.-Russia relation hopes on Obama
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said on Saturday that Russia was hoping the incoming administration of U.S. President-elect Barack Obama might lead to a thaw in U.S.-Russia relations, Reuters reported.
"U.S.-Russian relations lack the needed mutual trust. We pin such hopes (of restoring trust) on the arrival of the new U.S. administration," Medvedev told the Council on Foreign Relations.
The Russian president was in Washington to attend a summit of the Group of 20 nations hosted by President George W. Bush, who leaves office on January 20.
