      Addressing the current status of reset process launched jointly with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, Obama said that he and Medvedev had recently managed to forge an extremely successful partnership. To illustrate this point he cited the new START treaty, which would not have been signed without a strong relationship. Other achievements listed by Obama include a bilateral presidential commission that deals with a wide range of issues, the fact that Russia is on track to join WTO after 18 years of negotiations, the 123 Agreement, which allows for nuclear cooperation, as well as a dialog on missile defense issues.
