WASHINGTON (UPI) -- The White House said Thursday the administration was not surprised when Russian President Vladimir Putin decided not to attend the G8 meeting.

Putin, who was inaugurated as Russia's president during the weekend, is sending Prime Minister Medvedev to the United States in his stead.

"It was not a surprise, and it does not at all feel like a snub," press secretary Jay Carney told White House reporters aboard Air Force One heading to Seattle. "It was something we understood and understand."

Carney said President Obama had talked with the Russian president Wednesday and was looking forward to meeting with Putin face-to-face in June at the G20 summit in Los Cabos, Mexico.

Putin said his responsibilities to form a new government in Moscow would keep him from attending the G8 summit at Camp David May 18-19.

The switch is available in the pictured dark dreary or a lighter rolex replica sale color. There is also an alligator band in addition to the metal anklet bracelets available. In either material or combo of materials -- I have a feeling that this line along with the GMT are going to be a success for Omega. Omega ups the bet with this new Seamater Aqua Terra GMT cheap replica watches Chronograph watch. The timepiece is available in either steel or 18k red gold, and on both versions the hands and hour indicators on the switch are in 18k gold. Sounds like Rolex territory to me. Uncertain if any previous Seamaster Aqua Terra watches had gold (white) in the knobs of even steel watches. The directory line pattern of best rolex replica the switch means to look like the deck of a boat (the "Teak Concept"), which explains the main ritzy character of the watch. The switch will have highly finished features, and you can tell it is nice and deep to look into. There is of course a metal (steel or gold) diamond available in addition to the breitling replica sale alligator band. The watch will be a good size at 44mm wide.
