Russia rues Obama no-show in Moscow

Official says Barack Obama's decision to cancel summit reflected US inability to develop ties on "equal basis".

    Russia has voiced disappointment over US President Barack Obama's decision to cancel his Moscow summit with President Vladimir Putin, but said it remains ready to co-operate on bilateral and international issues.

    Putin's foreign affairs adviser, Yuri Ushakov, told reporters on Wednesday that Obama's decision reflected the US' inability to develop relations with Moscow on an "equal basis".
