U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry arrives in Sochi, Russia for talks on Syria and Ukraine. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry arrived at the Black Sea resort of Sochi on Tuesday for the highest-level U.S. visit to Russia in two years. Kerry hopes to discuss issues including the Iran nuclear talks, Yemen and Libya, as well as Russia's willingness to curb its involvement in Ukraine when he meets with President Vladimir Putin. With relations between Russia and the United States at their lowest level since the Cold War, the trip appeared designed as much to maintain contact as anything else. Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, welcomed the meeting as a positive step. Kerry is also expected to meet Russian Foreign Minsiter Sergei Lavrov while in Sochi.
