MOSCOW, March 1 – Russia is expecting "concrete proposals" from new US President Barack Obama to resolve disagreements on missile defence, President Dmitry Medvedev was quoted as saying by the Kremlin Sunday.,
"I am counting on the new US administration behaving on this question in a more creative and friendly way," Medvedev said in an interview with Spanish media, the transcript of which was published on the Kremlin website.
"We have already received positive signals from our American colleagues. I am expecting that these signals will turn into concrete proposals," he added.
Medvedev said he hoped that this issue would be discussed in his first meeting with Obama, expected to take place on the sidelines of the meeting of G20 countries in London on April 2.
Moscow reacted furiously to plans by the former administration of George W. Bush to place missile defence facilities in Poland and the Czech Republic, saying the move was directly aimed against Russia.
