Russian Officials Argue About Approach To Take With Obama

Russian officials are arguing over which approach to take with President-Elect Barack Obama has he prepares to come to power in January.

Officials have differing opinions about whether Russian President Dmitry Medvedev should congratulate Obama on his November Fourth election win. The disagreement illustrates Medvedev's uncertainty of how to deal with the new U.S. Administration.

On the day after the election, Medvedev announced he would deploy Iskander medium-range weapons in Russia's Westernmost territory in retaliation for the planned U.S. Missile defense system in Poland and the Czech Republic. Obama has said he wants to ensure that the defense system is effective before approving it.
