Russian President Dmitry Medvedev wished Arnold Schwarzenegger success in his “new life” Monday, according to the Interfax news agency.

“I wish you success in your new life,” Medvedev wrote in a Twitter note addressed to Schwarzenegger, the Russian agency reported. “There are still many interesting things up ahead.”

Schwarzenegger and the Russian president became acquainted in October, when the then-governor visited Moscow and Medvedev jokingly offered him the vacant position of mayor.
