President Obama’s in Moscow with nuclear weapons top of the agenda. He says he’s confident that the discussions could offer “extraordinary progress” on several fronts. Not all of you are so optimistic, and not just because of what may or may not be agreed during these talks.
Does the nature of the two countries – their geography, their politics, their cultures – and their long history of competition mean that a friendly and co-operative relationship will always remain beyond reach? Maybe if you’re Russian or American you don’t even think it’s desirable.
Mr Obama says ‘the United States and Russia have more in common than they have differences”. Do you believe that? We’ll take today’s programme to explore the relationship that both sides say they want to reset. Is it all wishful thinking?
Russians feel bullied by the US with only 12 percent saying the US treats Russia fairly, according to a new survey.
But M Waqar in New York thinks the opportunities for partnership are virtually limitless.
Needless to say, we’re especially keen to hear from you if you’re American or Russian.
