Kremlin Releases New Footage of Putin’s 2001 Visit to Bush in Texas

The Kremlin has released new footage of President Vladimir Putin's visit to Texas in Nov. 13-15, 2001.

He met with then-U.S. President George W. Bush for a three-day summit and visited Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas.

The two leaders discussed denuclearization as well as plans for Russia to become more aligned with Western economies.

"During the summit, President Bush said that their personal friendship and contribution to the development of Russian-American relations would live longer than their terms in office," the Kremlin said at the time.
