10 August 2013 Last updated at 02:14 BST

The US and Russia must find progress on critical issues despite "collisions and moments of disagreement", US Secretary of State John Kerry has said.

At a meeting in Washington, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the two nations had laid a "solid foundation" for future co-operation.

The conference comes days after US President Barack Obama cancelled a summit with Vladimir Putin after Russia decided to grant temporary asylum to the former US intelligence analyst Edward Snowden.
