Medvedev Letter in the Washington Post

Yes, there are curious happenings in the world these days (apart from the economic catastrophe). Russian President Dmitrii Medvedev published a letter (Building Russian-US Bonds) on the Washington Post op-ed page, yesterday, 31 March, a day before the G-20 summit was set to open in London. Maybe this (after President Obama's letter earlier this year) could be the start of a process that might see an end to the baiting and bad relations between the US and Russia. There is too much in the world that the two countries could be cooperaating on.
