If any proof was needed that the relationship between the U.S. and Russia is as cold as the Siberian winter, this is it.
President Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin held a closed door meeting at the U.N. Monday, their first in two years, as the press waited expectantly for the pair to emerge for a photo op.
But it didn’t happen the way the gathered media had anticipated.
The two presidents walked out of the meeting, shook hands and quickly went their separate ways.
According to CBS’ Mark Knoller, the photo op lasted about 13 seconds.
