Carney: White House 'Not Disappointed' By Putin Skipping G-8 Summit

The White House isn't disappointed by Russian President Vladimir Putin's decision to skip the G-8 summit hosted by President Obama later this month, White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters on Thursday. World leaders have been preparing for the summit for months, but Putin informed Obama in a phone call on Wednesday that Russian Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev would be going in his place.

There are "a number of questions" regarding Putin's decision, Carney said, "but the broad answer is no, we’re not disappointed." 

 

"The president and President Putin had a very good conversation. And the president looks forward to meeting with Prime Minister Medvedev at the G-8 and looks forward to meeting -- his first meeting with President Putin in one month. It’s not as if it will be a long time before they do actually get a chance to meet," Carney said.
