Avoid meeting for the sake of meetings

Seems like the talking point that Obama and Putin should avoid meeting for the sake of meetings has become pretty popular both in White House Kremlin:

  • My RIA column on Aug. 1, urging cancellation of the Moscow summit " it is best that the
  • two leaders (Obama and Putin) refrain from meeting for the sake of meeting."
    Obama's aide Ben Rhodes on Aug. 7 on cancellation of the Moscow meeting: "We just don't want to have a summit for the sake of having a summit."
  • Vladimir Putin on Oct.8 in Bali: “I do not think that meetings should be held just for the sake of meeting."
