Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov expressed confidence on Thursday that planned talks with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry would be "useful for us to prepare a maximally concrete" response to U.S. President Barack Obama's message to his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin.
Strategic stability issues, including NATO's European missile shield plan, are on the agenda for the negotiations with Kerry, Lavrov told a news conference in Budapest after talks with Hungarian Foreign Minister Janos Martonyi.
