Putin Confident of Good Relations with Bush Administration
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday said he was confident that relations between Moscow and Washington would not worsen under the new Republican administration of President-elect George W. Bush.
"My analysis of modern history shows that when Republicans were heading the US administration, even US-Soviet relations were not harmed," he said in an interview broadcast on state broadcaster RTR television.
"We have always been able to find a common language with the Republicans. The United States and Russia are no longer rivals and enemies as during Soviet times," added Putin -- MOSCOW (AFP)
