Samantha Power: Obama Believes Skipping Putin Meeting ‘Irresponsible’ Given Stakes

Samantha Power: Obama Believes Skipping Putin Meeting ‘Irresponsible’ Given StakesSamantha Power, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, defended President Obama’s plans to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin, saying that the president believes that neglecting to meet with the Russian leader while the pair are in the same city would be “irresponsible” given the high stakes. She said the meeting between the two leaders scheduled for Monday is not an indication the U.S. strategy of isolating Putin has failed. “Isolating him has had profound effects, as you know, on Russia’s economy and his own sense of stature on the international stage, which is why I think [President Putin] is reaching out in a whole host of ways,” Power said, referencing Putin’s recent phone call to singer and gay rights activist Elton John.
