Bill Clinton says 'trustworthy' Putin kept his word in all deals

Washington, Sept. 27 (ANI): Former President Bill Clinton has said Russian President Vladimir Putin is trustworthy and has never gone back on a promise.

During a gathering at the Clinton Global Initiative in New York, Clinton said that Putin kept his word in all the deals they have made.

Clinton made the comments in context of speaking about Syria, and the plan forged by Russia to strip President Bashar al-Assad of his chemical weapon stash and turn it over to the international community for destruction.

According to the Washington Times, Clinton also admitted he couldn't predict a successful outcome with the Syrian agreement.

Clinton also said his working relationship with Putin had been marked by candor, adding that the Russian leader is at times 'brutally blunt'. (ANI)
