US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says her talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov were a "fresh start" in resetting relations between the two superpowers. Clinton said the discussions with Lavrov on Friday touched on the two nations' mutual interest in advancing nuclear disarmament and on growing concerns about Iranian nuclear development and instability in Afghanistan. She said the talks did not produce any formal agreements, but both sides expressed interest in restarting nonproliferation talks. Clinton also expressed gratitude for Russian willingness to allow US nonmilitary shipments to transit through its borders to Afghanistan. Clinton said they had "a very productive meeting of the minds on the range of issues" expected to be broached in future talks.
