Russia's foreign minister and the U.S. secretary of state
Russia's foreign minister and the U.S. secretary of state have said they are content with their talks in Geneva and hope for continuation of dialogue on bilateral and global issues.

Sergei Lavrov and Hillary Clinton said they will rebuild bilateral relations and try to reach an agreement on a new strategic arms reduction treaty by the end of 2009.

They also voiced the hope that interaction will be continued in the fight against terrorism in Afghanistan and in the Middle East settlement, as well as in the resolution of the Iran and North Korea problems.

Clinton and Lavrov met in Geneva on Friday to discuss a number of issues on the international agenda, as well as bilateral relations that became increasingly strained during the era of the Bush administration.

They made a symbolic "reboot" to improve relations between the two countries when they met.

This was Lavrov and Clinton's first official meeting and is a lead-up to the G20 summit in London on April 2, where Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and U.S. President Barack Obama will meet for the first time.
