After their first meeting in two thousand one,president bush was convinced mister pugh ton was a man he could trust.I look, the man in the eye,I found it to be very straight forward and trustworthy.

I was able to, um, get a sense of his soul. That personal bond grew stronger three months later when the russian president was the first foreign leader to call mr.Bush after the terrorist attacks on new york city in washington.Russia quickly became a valuable ally in the war on terrorism.Andrew cutchins,the moscow center director at the carnegie endowment for international peace,believes this was the high water mark in the relationship.

We had our peak of cooperation,of course,in the war on the war on terrorism,in the efforts to to take out that allah bahn in afghanistan in two thousand two,two thousand one two thousand two,there was,you know,quite extensive intelligence sharing around that.

Since then,other cooperation has has fallen off a bit.In stark contrast to that early cooperation,there have been a number of sharp disagreements since,most notably over moscow stand with france and germany against the u s led invasion of iraq.Moscow and washington also traded charges of interfering with the ukrainian elections.

I think the romance is over.John holzman studies european issues at the heritage foundation in washington.He says the authoritarian steps taken by mister pugh done,including suppressing the independent media,seizing the yugo,saw a lump on e and consolidating political power,make it unlikely russia will become a close limited ally of the united states.Still, mister bush would like to see the bilateral relationship mature.

IT's important for russia and the united states to have the kind of relationship where if we disagree with decisions, we can do so in a friendly in positive way.But achieving that could be a challenge.

Earlier this month, secretary of state congolese a rice met with her russian counterpart in what was described by some present as a contentious meeting.Ms.Rice reportedly told foreign minister sergei love wrath that moscow's crackdown on dissent was making russian american relations in her words more difficult.

According to andrew cartons,the american delegation was further disappointed by mister lebron.Suggest a which focused on a list of complaints and concerns.

This was especially disappointing because I think for the bush administration for the president in particular this meeting in bratislava is is pretty important and will set the tone for the u s russian relationship over the course of the next next four years.Neither leader can afford to see this relationship fail.

Several foreign policy experts tell v o a a number of positive developments are expected to come out of the summit, including greater cooperation to counter the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and support for rushes ascension to the world trade organization.But john hussman doesn't expect the partnership to live up to its early promise.That means we're going to have a prickly,difficult partnership.

Well worth doing. Well worth attempting. But on the other hand,I think we have to see this for what it really is a relationship in which need not personal devotion is paramount.
