John Kerry: US and Russia must talk despite 'collisions'

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.
