Russian Prime Minister Vladmir Putin has met with former US President Bill Clinton in Moscow.

During their meeting on Tuesday, the two leaders referred to the recent spy scandal. Putin expressed confidence in US-Russia ties, saying the ongoing positive trend will not be affected.

On Tuesday, authorities arrested 10 people in the US and an eleventh in Cyprus, on charges of spying for Russia.

The Russian Foreign Minister later acknowledged that the arrested were Russian citizens, but insisted they did nothing to hurt US interests.

Vladmir Putin, Russian Prime Minister, said, "The positive trend which has been accumulating of late in relations between our countries will not suffer from these particular events. We hope very much those who value Russian-American relations, understand this, including today's situation."

Konstantin Kosachev, Chairman of Russian Duma Foreign Relations Committee, said, "Right now it seems rather stupid. It does not correspond with the current state of relations between Russia and the United States I feel deeply sorry for that."
