White House spokesman Jay Carney said President Barack Obama will meet Russian President Vladimir Putin next week in some fashion during the G20 summit in St Petersburg. Obama and Putin have been at odds over Russia's decision to grant temporary asylum to former U.S. spy agency contractor Edward Snowden. The move allowed Snowden to avoid facing U.S. espionage charges for revealing details of U.S. surveillance programs.
