After the Cold War, the thaw accelerates as USA and Russia look to abolish visas

At a meeting last week between US Vice President, Joe Biden and Russian Prime Minister, Vladimir Putin, co-operation initiatives between the two countries were discussed which included scrapping of visa requirements between Russia and America. The meeting was felt to be successful overall by the two men and a senior  (anonymous) American administration official was reported to have said that the meeting was: “a serious discussion about serious issues, including cooperation on missile defense, accession to the World Trade Organization, Georgia, Afghanistan and energy.”
