Moscow, Oct 09: Endorsing the views of the Russian Communist Party that the US is not a "trustworthy financial leader", Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on Thursday said America, hit by a financial turmoil, can never regain its status in the global market.
"Trust in the United States as the leader of the free world and free economy, and the trust in the Wall Street as the centre of this trust has been lost, and I believe, for ever.
Return to the previous situation will not be possible any more," Putin said at his meeting here with the Communist lawmakers.
"This is not only my view. European leaders, experts, presidents of central banks and finance ministers also directly or indirectly saying this," Putin said in his televised remarks.
