Ambassador of Russia to the U.S. Returns to Philadelphia
H.E. Sergey Kislyak
Ambassador of Russia to the United States
Wednesday, October 19, 2011 — Evening
In March 2009, President Obama called for a “reset” of its relationship with Russia following several years of tension and conflicts between the two countries. Amid current efforts at cooperation, and in anticipation of 2012 presidential elections in both Russia and the United States that may again impact the relationship, Ambassador Sergey Kislyak joins the Council to discuss the significance of strong bilateral relations between Russia and the United States on such vital policy areas as arms control and nuclear non-proliferation, Iran's nuclear program, global energy security and boosting economic ties between our countries at a time of global financial instability.
