At the Bratislava summit George Bush and Vladimir Putin should not criticize each other
At the Bratislava summit George Bush and Vladimir Putin should not criticize each other but focus on security issues and strategic partnership, director of the Strategic Research Center Andrei Piontkovsky said during the Moscow-Washington video conference organized by RIA Novosti. "The US criticism of Russia is counter-productive. Even if it is just it does nothing but irritates Russian citizens," the political analyst said. "The US and Russian leaders should give up criticism and focus on the problems of security and strategic partnership," Mr. Piontkovsky stressed. According to him, Vladimir Putin was one of the few Russian statesmen who realized in 2001 that Russia and the United States have common interests. "All the 21st century's conflicts are close to the Russian border - the Middle east, Central Asia and China's reinforcement in the Far East," Mr. Piontkovsky noted. In his words, the US operation in Afghanistan proved the coincidence of interests. Among other things, it helped solve the problem of Russia's security, combating the threat of Islamic radicalism in Central Asia. "We should preserve this position on security issues. Therefore, Vladimir Putin should confront some Russian bureaucrats regarding the US as an enemy," the expert said. In his opinion, George Bush faces a similar problem. Not all representatives of the US administration share his position. "I believe the two presidents will adhere to these positions during the summit in Bratislava," he added.
