MOSCOW - British Prime Minister David Cameron holds landmark talks with Russian leaders on Monday, aiming to strengthen business and political ties with Moscow despite a long-running dispute over the murder of a Kremlin critic in London five years ago.

Cameron is due to meet President Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, Russia's most powerful man, during a visit of less than 24 hours to Moscow - the first by a British leader since former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko died in London from poisoning by radioactive polonium-210 in 2006.
The visit fits squarely into Cameron's strategy of trying to bolster Britain's weak recovery by boosting exports to fast-growing emerging markets such as Russia, India and China.

Cameron is accompanied by a high-powered 24-strong business delegation, including BP Chairman Bob Dudley, Royal Dutch Shell Chief Executive Peter Voser and Rolls-Royce Chairman Simon Robertson.

Cameron's office said the visit was expected to seal 215 million pounds ($345 million) worth of business deals, creating almost 500 new jobs in Britain and safeguarding thousands more, although it gave no details.
