4 Monday, 6 July 2009 London Lite World at a glance Obamasdelicatemissionto resetrelationswithRussia BARACK OBAMA arrives in Moscow today for a visit that will be a test of his foreign policy. At the first US-Russian summit since 2002, the American president will tackle arms control, missile defence and nuclear proliferation. White House officials said Mr Obama was hopeful of a reset of relations between the superpowers. His task is made trickier because he will have to deal with both Russias president and its prime minister. Dmitry Medvedev holds formal power, but prime minister Vladimir Putin, who hand- picked Mr Medvedev to succeed him as president, still wields enormous influence. On the eve of his visit, Mr Obama appeared to back Mr Medvedev, telling Russian opposition newspaper Novaya Gazeta he supported the presidents promises to boost freedom and the rule of law. Kremlin talks today will centre on nuclear disarmament and North Korea and Iran.
