Putin and Bush may sign defence deal in Sochi

Presidents Putin and Bush are expected to sign an agreement on future strategic relations between Russia and the U.S. at a meeting this weekend, according to Russian News Agencies quoting an unnamed source in the Kremlin.

The leaders, both in the last months of their respective presidencies, are to meet on April 6 at Putin's Black Sea residence in Sochi.

The source says that Moscow and Washington are working on what's been described as a road map for co-operation between the two countries.

According to the Kremlin insider, the declaration will take in missile defence issues.
