WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama is cancelling his planned meeting Russian President Vladimir Putin scheduled for next month in Moscow, an administration official said on Wednesday.

The Obama administration has repeatedly expressed disappointment after Moscow granted asylum to former US spy agency contractor Edward Snowden, rejecting U.S. pleas to hand him over to face espionage charges.
