Medvedev, Obama to Meet

WASHINGTON — U.S. President Barack Obama will hold a meeting with President Dmitry Medvedev during an upcoming trip to Asia, said White House Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes.

Obama will meet Medvedev on the sidelines of an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meeting in Yokohama on Nov. 14, he said.

“This, of course, is one of the president’s closest and most active relationships with any foreign leader,” Rhodes said Thursday.

He said they would discuss a range of issues, including Moscow’s bid for World Trade Organization membership, and cooperation on issues like nonproliferation, nuclear security and other security issues. 


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
