US & RUSSIA New Cold War Tensions Remain High

Mixed Signals: Russia shrugs off Cold War remarks while Obama plays up : Russia and the U.S. are sending rather contradictory signals about their relationship. There's no sign of Cold-War thinking - according to Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who's with the Russian defense chief meeting their U.S. counterparts. President Obama, though, says relations need to be paused and re-assessed. It's all in the wake of Obama cancelling his summit with Vladimir Putin, after Moscow granted Edward Snowden temporary asylum. RT's Gayane Chichakyan has more. International relations expert Shirin Sadeghi, says it would be a mistake if Washington lets Snowden affair damage its ties with Moscow - as too many world issues depend on them getting along.
