Russian president Dmitry Medvedev supported the re-election of President Barack Obama in 2012, fearing that the two men’s efforts to improve ties may lose steam under a new administration, Medvedev said in an interview with the Financial Times.
“I can tell you directly — I would like Barack Obama to be re-elected president of the United States maybe more than someone else,” said the head of the Russia.
“Our relationship [the the United States] have improved. And I think this was made possible through the efforts of the new administration and Barack Obama in person, with whom I have relations of friendship. I work with him easily, “said Russian President.
The presidential election in the United States will be held in November 2012. Obama has officially announced his intention to run as a candidate.
