On Tuesday, September 25, 2001, the leader of Yabloko Grigory Yavlinsky had a meeting with the Ambassador of the United States in Russia Alexander Vershbow. At the end of the meeting Yavlinsky informed journalists that Ambassador Vershbow had expressed his satisfaction and gratitude on behalf of the US government in connection with the initiative of the President of Russia to support the anti-terrorist operation of the USA. Yavlinsky and Vershbow recognised the demand to maintain close contacts between the presidents of both countries in discussions of the detail of the coming “retaliatory action”. “In our discussions we agreed that the US actions in Afghanistan should not be total by nature and represent a war against a nation. It is also important for the Arab and Muslim countries to join this coalition. Ambassador Vershbow agreed with these positions,” added Yavlinsky.

Yavlinsky also stated his support for the declaration of the President of Russia. According to Yavlinsky, it maintains the policy started on September 11, 2001, by expressing support for the American people and predetermines development trends in relations between Russia and the international community towards a deepening of cooperation and “rejection of the relics of the Cold War”.

According to Yavlinsky, the economic problems connected with the impending visit of the US trade representative to Russia, Russia’s admission to the ITO and the terms of such admittance were also debated during the meeting. The parties also discussed the position of the USA regarding oil prices.
