they were then joined by a group of advisors "Our relationship has never been worse than it is now" Trump said "However that changed as of about four hours ago I really believe that" In a joint press conference following their meeting Trump and Putin summarized the gist of what they had covered They addressed nuclear weapons as two of the worlds leading nuclear powers and the push for denuclearization in North Korea They also recounted discussing the ongoing crisis in Syria where Russia has been criticized for supporting President Assads regime and the natural gas pipeline between Russia and Germany which Trump has recently criticized On the subject of Russian interference in the US elections a topic people are watching closely after special counsel Robert Mueller indicted 12 Russian intelligence operatives last week Putin publicly denied "so-called interference" allegations Read a transcript of the press conference below: PUTIN (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): Thank you so much Shall we start working I guess Distinguished Mr President ladies and gentlemen negotiations with the president of the United States Donald Trump took place in a frank and business-like atmosphere I think we can call it a success and a very fruitful round of negotiations We carefully analyzed the current status the present and the future of the Russia-United States relationship key issues of the global agenda PUTIN (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): It’s quite clear to everyone that the bilateral relationship are going through a complicated stage and yet those impediments the current tension the tense atmosphere essentially have no solid reason behind it The Cold War is a thing of past the era of acute ideological confrontation of the two countries is a thing of remote past is a vestige of the past The situation in the world changed dramatically Today both Russia and the United States face a whole new set of challenges Those include a dangerous maladjustment of mechanisms for maintaining international security and stability regional crises the creeping threats of terrorism and transnational crime the snowballing problems in the economy environmental risks and other sets of challenges We can only cope with these challenges if we join ranks and work together Hopefully we will reach this understanding with our American partners Today’s negotiations reflected our joint wish — our joint wish with President Trump to readdress this negative situation in the bilateral relationship I outlined first steps for improving this relationship to restore the acceptable level of trust and going back to the previous level of interaction on all mutual interest issues As major nuclear powers we bear special responsibility for maintaining international security (inaudible) vital — and we mentioned this here in the negotiations — it’s crucial that we fine-tune the dialogue on strategic stability and global security and non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction We submitted our American colleagues a note with a number of specific suggestions We believe it necessary to work together further on — to interact on the disarmament agenda military and technical cooperation This includes the extension of the Strategic Offensive Arms Limitation Treaty It’s a dangerous situation with a global American anti-missile defense system it’s (ph) the implementation issues with the INF treaty And of course the agenda of non-placement of weapons in space PUTIN (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): We favor the continued cooperation in counter-terrorism and maintaining cyber-security And I’d like to point out specifically that our special services are cooperating quite successfully together The most recent example is their operational cooperation within the recently concluded World Football Cup In general the context among the special services should be put to a system-wide basis — should be brought to a systemic framework I recall I reminded President Trump about this suggestion to re-establish the working group on anti-terrorism We also mentioned a plethora of regional crises It’s not always that our postures dovetail exactly and yet the overlapping and mutual interests abound We have to look for points of contact and interact closer in a variety of international forum Clearly we mentioned the regional crisis for instance Syria As far as Syria is concerned the task of establishing peace and reconciliation in this country could be the first showcase example of the successful joint work Russia and the United States apparently can act proactively and take considerable leadership on this issue and organize the interaction to overcome humanitarian crisis and help Syrian refugees to go back to their homes PUTIN (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): In order to accomplish this level of successful cooperation in Syria we have all the required components Let me remind you of that Both Russian and American military have acquired the useful experience of coordination of their action established the operational channels of communication which permit it to avoid dangerous incidents and unintentional collisions in the air and in the ground Also crushing (ph) terrorists in the southwest of Syria The south of Syria should be brought to the full compliance with the treaty of 1974 about the separation of forces — about separation of forces of Israel and Syria This will bring peace to Golan Heights and bring more peaceful relationship between Syria and Israel and also to provide security of the state of Israel Mr President paid special attention to the issue during today’s negotiations And I would like to confirm that Russia is interested in this development and will act accordingly Thus far we will make a step toward creating a lasting peace in compliance with the respective resolutions of Security Council for instance the Resolution 338 We are glad that the Korean Peninsula issue is starting to resolve To a great extent it was possible thanks to the personal engagement of President Trump who opted for dialogue instead of confrontation We also mentioned our concern about the withdrawal of the United States from the JCPOA Well the US — our US counterparts are aware of our posture Let me remind you that thanks to the Iranian nuclear deal Iran became the most controlled country in the world It submitted to the control of IAEA It effectively ensured the exclusively peaceful nature of Iranian nuclear program and strengthened the nonproliferation regime While we discussed the internal Ukrainian crisis we paid special attention to the bona fide implementation of Minsk Agreements by Kiev At the same time United States could be more decisive in nudging the Ukrainian leadership and encourage it to work actively on this We paid more attention to economic ties and economic cooperation It’s clear that both countries — the business of both countries are interested in this American delegation was one of the largest delegations in the St Petersburg Economic Forum It featured over 500 representatives from American businesses We agreed — me and President Trump — we agreed to create a high-level working group that would bring together captains of Russian and American business After all entrepreneurs and businessmen know better how to articulate this successful business cooperation We’ll let them think and make their proposals and suggestions in this regard Once again President Trump mentioned the issue of the so-called interference of Russia with the American elections and I had to reiterate things I said several times including during our personal contacts that the Russian state has never interfered and is not going to interfere into internal American affairs including election process PUTIN (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): Any specific material — if such things arise — we are ready to analyze together For instance we can analyze them through the joint working group on cyber-security the establishment of which we discussed during our previous contacts And clearly it’s past time we restore our cooperation in the cultural area and the humanitarian area As far as — I think you know that recently we hosted the American Congressman Delegation and now it’s perceived and portrayed almost as a historic event while — although it should have been just a current affairs just business as usual And in this regard we mentioned this proposal to the president we have to think about practicalities of our cooperation but also about the rationality of the underlying logic of it And we have to engage experts on bilateral relationship who know history and the background of our relationship The idea is to create an expert council that would include political scientists prominent diplomats and former military experts from both countries who would look for points of contact between the two countries and would look for ways on putting the relationship on the trajectory of growth In general we are glad with the outcome of our first full-scale meeting because previously we only had a chance to talk briefly on international fora We had a good conversation with President Trump and I hope that we start to understand each other better And I’m grateful to Donald for it Clearly there are some challenges left when we were not able to clear all the backlog but I think that we made the first important step in this direction And in conclusion I want to point out that this atmosphere of cooperation is something that we are especially grateful for to our Finnish hosts We are grateful for Finnish people and Finnish leadership for what they’ve done I know that we’ve caused some inconvenience to Finland and we apologize for it Thank you for your attention TRUMP: Thank you very much Thank you I have just concluded a meeting with President Putin on a wide range of critical issues for both of our countries We had direct open deeply productive dialogue Went very well Before I begin I want to thank President Niinisto of Finland for graciously hosting today’s summit President Putin and I were saying how lovely it was and what a great job they did I also want to congratulate Russia and President Putin for having done such an excellent job in hosting the World Cup It was really one of the best ever And your team also did very well It was a great job I’m here today to continue the proud tradition of bold American diplomacy From the earliest days of our republic American leaders have understood that diplomacy and engagement is preferable to conflict and hostility A productive dialogue is not only good for the United States and good for Russia but it is good for the world The disagreements between our two countries are well known and President Putin and I discussed them at length today But if we’re going to solve many of the problems facing our world then we’re going to have to find ways to cooperate in pursuit of shared interests TRUMP: Too often in both recent past and long ago we have seen the consequences when diplomacy is left on the table We’ve also seen the benefits of cooperation In the last century our nations fought alongside one another in the Second World War Even during the tensions of the Cold War when the world looked much different than it does today the United States and Russia were able to maintain a strong dialogue But our relationship has never been worse than it is now However that changed as of about four hours ago I really believe that Nothing would be easier politically than to refuse to meet to refuse to engage but that would not accomplish anything As president I cannot make decisions on foreign policy in a futile effort to appease partisan critics or the media or Democrats who want to do nothing but resist and obstruct Constructive dialogue between the United States and Russia affords the opportunity to open new pathways toward peace and stability in our world I would rather take a political risk in pursuit of peace than to risk peace in pursuit of politics As president I will always put (sic) what is best for America and what is best for the American people During today’s meeting I addressed directly with President Putin the issue of Russian interference in our elections I felt this was a message best delivered in person Spent a great deal of time talking about it And President Putin may very well want to address it and very strongly because he feels very strongly about it and he has an interesting idea We also discussed one of the most critical challenges facing humanity: nuclear proliferation I provided an update on my meeting last month with Chairman Kim on the denuclearization of North Korea And after today I am very sure that President Putin and Russia want very much to end that problem going to work with us And I appreciate that commitment The president and I also discussed the scourge of radical Islamic terrorism Both Russia and the United States has suffered horrific terrorist attacks and we have agreed to maintain open communication between our security agencies to protect our citizens from this global menace Last year we told Russia about a planned attack in St Petersburg and they were able to stop it cold They found them They stopped them There was no doubt about it I appreciated President Putin’s phone call afterwards to thank me I also emphasized the importance of placing pressure on Iran to halt its nuclear ambitions and to stop its campaign of violence throughout the area throughout the Middle East As we discussed at length the crisis in Syria is a complex one Cooperation between our two countries has the potential to save hundreds of thousands of lives I also made clear that the United States will not allow Iran to benefit from our successful campaign against ISIS We have just about eradicated ISIS in the area TRUMP: We also agreed that representatives from our national security councils will meet to follow up on all of the issues we addressed today and to continue the progress we have started right here in Helsinki Today’s meeting is only the beginning of a longer process but we have taken the first step toward a brighter future and one with a strong dialogue and a lot of thought Our expectations are grounded in realism but our hopes are grounded in America’s desire for friendship cooperation and peace And I think I can speak on behalf of Russia when I say that also President Putin I want to thank you again for joining me for these important discussions and for advancing open dialogue between Russia and the United States Our meeting carries on a long tradition of diplomacy between Russia the United States for the greater good of all And this was a very constructive day this was a very constructive few hours that we spent together It’s in the interest of both of our countries to continue our conversation and we have agreed to do so I’m sure we’ll be meeting again in the future often and hopefully we will solve every one of the problems that we discussed today So again President Putin thank you very much STAFF (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): Distinguished presidents now the journalists would have a chance to ask two questions two sets of questions each First the Russian journalist will ask the question Please give your affiliation QUESTION (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): Good afternoon my name is Alex Amashkov (ph) Interfax Information Agency I have a question to President Trump During your recent European tour you mentioned that implementation of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline makes Europe a hostage of Russia and you suggested that you could free Europe from this by supplying American LNG But this cold winter actually showed that the current modal — current mechanism of supply of fuel to Europe is quite viable At the same time as far as I know US had to buy even Russian gas for Boston I have a question: The implementation of your idea has a political tinge to it or is it a practical one Because there will be a gap formed in the supply-and-demand mechanism and the first is the consuming countries who will fall into this gap And the second question before the meeting with President Putin you called him an adversary a rival and yet you expressed hope that you will be able to bring this relationship to a new level Did you manage to do this TRUMP: Well actually I called him a competitor And a good competitor he is And I think the word “competitor” is a compliment I think that we will be completing when you talk about the pipeline I’m not sure necessarily that it’s in the best interests of Germany or not but that was a decision that they made We’ll be competing — as you know the United States is now — or soon will be but I think it actually is right now the largest in the oil and gas world So we’re going to be selling LNG and we’ll have to be competing with the pipeline and I think will compete successfully although there is a little advantage locationally So I just wish them luck I mean I did I discussed with Angela Merkel in pretty strong tones But I also know where they’re all coming from and they have a very close source So we’ll see how that all works out TRUMP: But we have lots of sources now and the United States is much different than it was a number of years ago when we weren’t unable to extract what we could extract today So today we’re number one in the world at that and I think we’ll be out there competing very strongly Thank you very much PUTIN (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): If I may I’d throw in some two cents We talked to Mr President including this subject as well We are aware of the stance of President Trump and I think that we as a major oil and gas power and the United States as a major oil and gas power as well we could work together on regulation of international markets because neither of us is actually interested in the plummeting of the prices And the consumers will suffer as well and the consumers in the United States will suffer as well And the shale gas production will suffer Because beyond a sudden price breakup (ph) it’s no longer profitable to — to produce gas But nor we are interested in driving prices up because it will drain just as — just as from all other sectors of the economy from (inaudible) building (ph) et cetera So we do have space for cooperation here That’s the first thing Then about the Nord Stream 2 Mr President voiced his concerns about the possibility of disappearance of transit through Ukraine And I reassured Mr President that Russia stands ready to maintain this transit Moreover we stand ready to extend this transit contract that’s about to expire next year in case — if the dispute between the economic entitles — dispute will be settled in the Stockholm arbitration court STAFF: (OFF-MIKE) goes to Jeff Mason from Reuters QUESTION: Thank you Mr President you tweeted this morning that it’s US foolishness stupidity and the Mueller probe that is responsible for the decline in US relations with Russia Do you hold Russia at all accountable for anything in particular And if so what would you — what would you consider them — that they are responsible for TRUMP: Yes I do I hold both countries responsible I think that the United States has been foolish I think we’ve all been foolish We should’ve had this dialogue a long time ago; a long time frankly before I got to office And I think we’re all to blame I think that the United States now has stepped forward along with Russia and we’re getting together and we have a chance to do some great things whether it’s nuclear proliferation in terms of stopping — you have to do it ultimately that’s probably the most important thing that we could be working on But I do feel that we have both made some mistakes I think that the — the probe is a disaster for our country I think it’s kept us apart it’s kept us separated There was no collusion at all Everybody knows it And people are being brought out to the fore (ph) So far that I know virtually none of it related to the campaign And they’re going to have to try really hard to find somebody that did relate to the campaign That was a clean campaign I beat Hillary Clinton easily And frankly we beat her — and I’m not even saying from the standpoint — we won that race And it’s a shame that there could even be a little bit of a cloud over it People know that people understand it But the main thing — and we discussed this also — zero collusion And it has had a negative impact upon the relationship of the two largest nuclear powers in the world We have 90 percent of nuclear power between the two countries It’s ridiculous It’s ridiculous what’s going on with the probe QUESTION: For President Putin if I could follow up as well why should Americans and why should President Trump believe your statement that Russia did not intervene in the 2016 election given the evidence that US intelligence agencies have provided And will you consider extraditing the 12 Russian officials that were indicted last week by a US grand jury TRUMP: Well I’m going to let the president answer the second part of that question But as you know the whole concept of that came up perhaps a little bit before but it came out as a reason why the Democrats lost an election which frankly they should have been able to win because the Electoral College is much more advantageous for Democrats as you know than it is to Republicans We won the Electoral College by a lot: 306 to 223 I believe And that was a well-fought — that was a well-fought battle We did a great job And frankly — I’m going to let the president speak to the second part of your question — but just to say it one time again — and I say it all the time — there was no collusion I didn’t know the president There was nobody to collude with There was no collusion with the campaign And every time you hear all of these you know 12 and 14 — it’s stuff that has nothing to do — and frankly they admit these are not people involved in the campaign But to the average reader out there they’re saying “Well maybe that does” It doesn’t And even the people involved some perhaps told mis-stories (ph) Or in one case the FBI said there was no lying There was no lying Somebody else said there was We ran a brilliant campaign and that’s why I’m president Thank you PUTIN (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): As to who is to be believed and to who’s not to be believed you can trust no one if you take this Where did you get this idea that President Trump trusts me or I trust him He defends the interests of the United States of America and I do defend the interests of the Russian Federation We do have interests that are common We are looking for points of contact There are issues where our postures diverge and we are looking for ways to reconcile our differences how to make our effort more meaningful We should not proceed from the immediate political interests that guide certain political powers in our countries We should be guided by facts Could you name a single fact that would definitely prove the collusion This is utter nonsense just like the president recently mentioned Yes the public at large in the United States had a certain perceived opinion of the candidates during the campaign But there’s nothing particularly extraordinary about it That’s the usual thing President Trump when he was a candidate he mentioned the need to restore the Russia-US relationship And it’s clear that certain parts of American society felt sympathetic about it and different people could express their sympathies (ph) in different ways But isn’t that natural Isn’t it natural to be sympathetic towards a person who is willing to restore the relationship with our country who wants to work with us We heard the accusations about a conquered (ph) country Well as far as I know this company hired American lawyers and the accusations doesn’t have a fighting change in the American courts So there’s no evidence when it comes to the actual facts So we have to be guided by facts and not by rumors Now let’s get back to the issue of these 12 alleged intelligence officers of — of Russia PUTIN (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): I don’t know the full extent of the situation but President Trump mentioned this issue and I will look into it So far I can say the following things off the top of my head We have enacting (sic) an existing agreement between the United States of America and the Russian Federation an existing treaty that dates back to 1999 The Mutual Assistance on Criminal Cases This treaty is in full effect It works quite efficiently On average we initiate about 100 150 criminal cases upon request from foreign states For instance the last year there was one extradition case upon the request sent by the United States So this treaty has specific legal procedures we can offer the appropriate commission headed by Special Attorney Mueller He can use this treaty as a solid foundation and send a formal — an official request to us so that we would interrogate — we want to hold a questioning of these individuals who he believes are privy to some crimes And our law enforcement are perfectly able to do this questioning and send the appropriate materials to the United States Moreover we can meet you halfway We can make another step We can actually permit official representatives of the United States including the members of this very commission headed by Mr Mueller — we can let them into the country and they will be present at this questioning But in this case there is a — there’s another condition This kind of effort should be a mutual one Then we would expect that the Americans would reciprocate and that they would question officials including the officers of law enforcement and intelligence service of the United States whom we believe are — who have something to do with illegal actions on the territory of Russia and we have to — to request the presence of our law enforcement For instance we can bring up the Mr Browder in this particular case Business associates of Mr Browder have earned over $15 billion in Russia They never paid any taxes neither in Russia nor in the United States and yet the money escaped the country They were transferred to the United States They sent huge amount of money $400 million as a contribution to the campaign of Hillary Clinton Well that’s the personal case It might have been legal the contribution itself but the way the money was earned was illegal So we have a solid reason to believe that some intelligence officers accompanied and guided these transactions So we have a — an interest of questioning them We can all — that — that could be a first step and we can also extend it Options abound and they all can be found in an appropriate legal framework STAFF: (OFF-MIKE) QUESTION: President Putin did you want President Trump to win the election and did you direct any of your officials to help him do that PUTIN: (THROUGH TRANSLATOR) Yes I did Yes I did Because he talked about bringing the US-Russia relationship back to normal STAFF (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): I think there can be three questions from the Russian pool Russia Today you have the floor QUESTION (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): Thank you so much Good evening to everyone My name is Ilya Petrenko RT TV channel (UNTRANSLATED) in English Mr President would you please go into the details of possibly any specific arrangements for the US to work together with Russia in Syria if any of these kind of arrangements were made today or discussed (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): And my question to President Putin in Russian Since we — we brought up the issue of football several times I ask — use the football language Mr Pompeo mentioned that when we talk about the Syrian cooperation the ball is in the Syrian court Mr Putin — in the Russian court — is it true And how would you use this fact the — the — having the ball TRUMP: Well I guess I’ll answer the first part of the question We’ve worked with Israel long and hard for many years many decades I think we’ve never — never has anyone any country been closer than we are President Putin also is helping Israel And we both spoke with Bibi Netanyahu and they would like to do certain things with respect to Syria having to do with the safety of Israel So in that respect we absolutely would like to work in order to help Israel And Israel would be working with us So both countries would work jointly And I think that when you look at all of the progress that’s been made in certain sections with the eradication of ISIS we’re about 98 percent 99 percent there And other things that have taken place that we’ve done and that frankly Russia has helped us with in certain respects But I think that working with Israel is a great thing And creating safety for Israel is something that both President Putin and I would like to see very much One little thing I might add to that is the helping of people Helping of people Because you have such horrible — if you see — and I’ve seen reports I’ve seen pictures I’ve seen just about everything And if we can do something to help the people of Syria get back into some form of shelter and — on a humanitarian basis — and that’s what the word was really a humanitarian basis — I think that both of us would be very interested in doing that And we are We will do that OK Thank you very much QUESTION: Excuse me but for now no specific agreements for instance between the militaries… TRUMP: Well our militaries do get along In fact our militaries actually have gotten along probably better than our political leaders for years But our militaries do get along very well and they do coordinate in Syria and other places OK Thank you PUTIN (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): Yes We did mention this We mentioned the humanitarian track of this issue Yesterday I discussed this with French President Mr Macron And we reached an agreement that together with European countries including France we will step up this effort On our behalf we provide military cargo aircraft to deliver the humanitarian cargo And today I brought up this issue with President Trump I think there is plenty of things to — to look into The crucial thing here is that a huge amount of refugees are in Turkey in Lebanon in Jordan in the states that border — are adjacent to Syria PUTIN (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): If we help — help them the migratory pressure upon the European states will drop — will be decreased many-fold And I believe it’s crucial from any point of view from humanitarian point of view from the point of view of — of helping people helping the refugees and in general I agree I concur with President Trump our military cooperate quite successfully together They do get along and I hope they will be able to do so in future And we will keep working in the Astana format — I mean Russia Turkey and Iran which I informed President Trump about But we do stand ready to link this effort through the so-called small group of states so that the process would be a broader one it would be a multidimensional one and so that we will be able to maximize our fighting chance to get the ultimate success in the issue of Syria And speaking about the — having the ball in our court in Syria President Trump has just mentioned that we’ve successfully completed the World Football Cup Speaking of the football actually Mr President I’ll give this ball to you and now the ball is in your court All the more that the United States will host the World Cup in 2026 TRUMP: Thank you very much We do host it and we hope we do as good a job That’s very nice That will go to my son Barron We have no question In fact (ph) Melania here you go (LAUGHTER) OK STAFF: Final question from the United States will go to Jonathan Lemire from the AP QUESTION: Thank you A question for each president; President Trump you first Just now President Putin denied having anything to do with the election interference in 2016 Every US intelligence agency has concluded that Russia did What — who — my first question for you sir is who do you believe My second question is would you now with the whole world watching tell President Putin would you denounce what happened in 2016 and would you warn him to never do it again TRUMP: So let me just say that we have two thoughts You have groups that are wondering why the FBI never took the server — haven’t they taken the server Why was the FBI told to leave the office of the Democratic National Committee I’ve been wondering that I’ve been asking that for months and months and I’ve been tweeting it out and calling it out on social media Where is the server I want to know where is the server and what is the server saying With that being said all I can do is ask the question My people came to me Dan Coates came to me and some others they said they think it’s Russia I have President Putin; he just said it’s not Russia I will say this: I don’t see any reason why it would be But I really do want to see the server But I have — I have confidence in both parties I — I really believe that this will probably go on for a while but I don’t think it can go on without finding out what happened to the server What happened to the servers of the Pakistani gentleman that worked on the DNC Where are those servers They’re missing; where are they What happened to Hillary Clinton’s e-mails 33000 e-mails gone — just gone I think in Russia they wouldn’t be gone so easily I think it’s a disgrace that we can’t get Hillary Clinton’s 33000 e-mails TRUMP: So I have great confidence in my intelligence people but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today And what he did is an incredible offer He offered to have the people working on the case come and work with their investigators with respect to the 12 people I think that’s an incredible offer OK Thank you PUTIN: Mr President TRUMP: Yes please PUTIN (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): I’d like to add something to this After all I was a intelligence officer myself and I do know how dossiers are made up Just a — just a second That’s the first thing Now the second thing: I believe that Russia is a democratic state and I hope you are not denying this right to your own country you’re not denying that United States is a democracy Do you believe United States is a democracy And if so if it is a democratic state then the final conclusion in this kind of a dispute can only be delivered by a trial by the court not by the executive by the law enforcement For instance the Concord company that was brought up is being accused it’s been accused of interference But this company does not constitute the Russian state It does not represent the Russian state And I brought several examples before Well you have a lot of individuals in the United States — take George Soros for instance — with multibillion in capital but does it make him — his position his posture the posture of the United States No it does not Well it’s the same case There is the issue of trying a case in the court and the final — the — the final say is for the court to deliver We are now talking about the private — the — the individuals not about particular states And as far as the most recent allegation is concerned about the Russian intelligence officers we do have an intergovernmental treaty Please do send us the request We will analyze it properly and we’ll send a formal response And as I said we can extend this cooperation but we should do it on a reciprocal basis because we would await (ph) our Russian counterparts to
