July 4, 2001

The message said, in particular:

“I look to the future of Russian-American relations with optimism. Together we have laid a positive basis for a new stage in bilateral cooperation and have given a powerful impulse to further constructive, pragmatic and predictable cooperation between Russia and the United States. I firmly believe that the upcoming intensive dialogue between us will make a real contribution to the strengthening of international security and strategic stability.”
