Russia and the United States have reached an agreement on the nuclear problem. After lengthy negotiations, the two leaders agreed to cut the military arsenals.
The bilateral meeting between Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin took place within the scope of the summit of the Group of Eight in Ireland. In light of recent events between Moscow and Washington, this meeting has attracted increased attention of international media. The presidents discussed the struggle against terrorism, the situation in Iran and the Syrian problem.

The next meeting between Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama is scheduled for September.
