President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin will use their first meeting Monday June 18, 2012 since Putin returned to the top job to claim leverage on their twin needs: Obama needs Russia to help, or at least not hurt, U.S. foreign policy aims in the Mideast and Afghanistan. Putin needs the United States as a foil for his argument that Russia doesn?t get its due as a great power. (AP Photo/Haraz N. Ghanbari, File)
