“He kept his word in all the deals we made,” Mr. Clinton said, United Press International reported.
Mr. Clinton made the comments in context of speaking about Syria, and the plan forged by Russia to strip President Bashar Assad of his chemical weapon stash and turn it over to the international community to control.
“[The U.S.] will just have to see what happens” with that deal, he said, UPI reported. “You work for the best and prepare for the worst in this business. But I think it would be a terrible mistake not to take advantage of the opportunity. And you know, look, Mr. Putin is very smart.”
