Obama and Medvedev Hold More Substantial Talks

President Obama is meeting with Russian president Dmitry Medvedev today to discuss shared political interests, including nuclear non-proliferation and if the U.S. will use Russia’s airspace to reach Afghanistan.

This meeting comes two months after the presidents committed to reducing thier respective nuclear arsenals and at a time when Russian approval of the Obama administration stands at a lowly 15%, reports the Huffington Post.

Nevertheless, the meeting is especially important as Medvedev undertakes his own pathway to peace in the Middle East. In June, Medvedv held talks with Egyptian president Hosni Mubarack to discuss a two-state solution and settlements. According to Al Jazeera, Russia will host a peace summit later this year.
