Obama And Open Mic
March 27, 2012 by staff
Obama And Open Mic, U.S. President Barack Obama on Monday told President Dmitry Medvedev that he had little flexibility to address Russia’s objections to a US missile defence shield before his November re-election bid.
Obama was picked up on an open mic privately explaining his position to Medvedev in an exchange heard by some reporters, during their meeting on the sidelines of the nuclear security summit in Seoul.
The US leader told Medvedev, in their last meeting before Vladimir Putin is inaugurated president in May, that on all issues, but particularly missile defence it was important for Russia to give him “space.”
Medvedev replied “Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space,” according to a transcript of the exchange carried by ABC News.
“This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility,” Obama said. In return Medvedev promised to “transmit this information to Vladimir.”
