U.S., Russia agree on nuclear deal, vary on Georgia

MOSCOW (Reuters) - The United States and Russia agreed on Monday to "reset" their relations and would complete a legally binding nuclear deal by the end of 2009, U.S. President Barack Obama told a news conference.

Obama said after holding talks with Russia's Dmitry Medvedev that Moscow would contribute greatly to the U.S.-led coalition's war in Afghanistan.

But he flagged the remaining disagreement over Georgia, saying Washington would stand by the Caucasus nation's sovereignty and territorial integrity.
