Russian President Vladimir Putin called the escalating dispute with Britain over the death of former KGB officer Alexander Litvinenko a "mini-crisis" Thursday, and said he was certain the nations would overcome it, Russian news agencies reported. At the same time, Putin suggested it was up to Britain to ease its stance in the confrontation over Russia's refusal to extradite the suspect in Litvinenko's radiation poisoning. "I think that Russian-British relations will develop normally," the RIA-Novosti news agency quoted Putin as saying. I'm sure we will overcome this mini-crisis." "But it is necessary to balance one's actions with common sense, to respect the legal rights and interests of partners - then everything will develop in the best way," the agency quoted him as saying.
