President Vladimir Putin is receiving chiefs of G8 leading news agencies
President Vladimir Putin is receiving chiefs of G8 leading news agencies. This is the first-ever meeting of the kind, and the president has chosen his Novo-Ogaryovo residence as the meeting location. Ministerial and youth forums of the G8 and anti-globalists’ conferences held prior to G8 summits have become traditional, but world news services have never had such meetings before. Itar-Tass initiated the convention. Chiefs of Reuters, Associated Press, Agence France-Presse, Deutsche Press News Agency, Agenzia Nazionale Stampa Associata and Kyodo Tsushin have come to Moscow to discuss the role of news agencies in the modern world and the coverage of pressing problems the G8 leaders will consider in St. Petersburg on July 15-17. The meeting with the Russian president is the main event of their visit. G8 Russian sherpa and presidential aide Igor Shuvalov is taking part in the meeting. The United Nations Organization has not lost its significance, President Vladimir Putin said in response to a question by ANSA news agency president Boris Biancheri. “I strongly disagree with the opinion that the UN is losing its significance,” Putin said. “No international forums, including the G8, can replace the UN,” he said. President Vladimir Putin welcomed the U.S. involvement in negotiations on Iran and reaffirmed that Russia objects to the use of force and thinks that economic sanctions would be premature. Russia wants and is ready to resolve all problems in the relations with Japan, and it will be looking for solutions, President Vladimir Putin said on Friday. President Vladimir Putin has called for a clear definition of ways to resolve territorial problems of the Montenegro and Kosovo kind. Russia does not aspire for incorporating regions outside its territory, such as South Ossetia or Abkhazia, he said at a Friday meeting with chiefs of G8 leading news agencies
