SOCHI, Russia - President Bush and Russian President Vladimir Putin failed in talks Sunday to reconcile differences on a planned U.S. missile defense system but agreed a "strategic framework" guiding future U.S.-Russia relations.

In prepared opening remarks at a joint news conference at the Russian leader's Black Sea vacation home, Putin said: "The American side has heard our concerns." "

Transcript of Bush-Putin news conference

Putin: "As far as strategic offensive weapons are concerned, we do have certain differences still in our basic approaches. And of course, both Russia and the United States are in favor of the continuation of a process of nuclear disarmament, and we have found some common ground here."

Really? Could have fooled me.

Anony comment I ran into : "However, I would have loved to have been a fly on those conference room walls when the subject of a potential US strike on Iran came up."

For sure.
