Russia calls off strategic talks with US

MOSCOW:Russia has called off strategic talks with the US scheduled for Tuesday in Vienna after a Washington delegation snubbed a meeting on cybersecurity.

Moscow's ambassador to the US Anatoly Antonov said Washington's last-minute pullout from the Geneva talks at the end of last month was an unfriendly step that gave the impression of having been pre-planned and leading to the further degradation of bilateral relations.

The move comes as Washington accuses Moscow of openly breaching Cold War era treaties by developing what President Vladimir Putin called a new generation of invincible hypersonic weapons and submarines. (AFP/APP)
