Russia 'Not Happy' With U.S. Missile Proposals

Russia and the U.S. remain at odds over U.S. plans for an anti-missile shield in Europe following talks in Moscow last week with President Barack Obama's national security adviser, a senior Kremlin aide said.

White House national security adviser Tom Donilon met President Vladimir Putin and senior Russian officials in the highest-level face-to-face talks since Obama began a new term in January.

Putin's foreign policy aide Yury Ushakov said Friday that U.S. proposals he said were laid out in a message delivered by Donilon contained little that was new and "did not make us very happy," RIA-Novosti reported.

He did not describe the proposals but said Russia would examine them further.
