    Workers walk in the terminal building of the new Berlin-Brandenburg Airport outside Berlin May 12, 2012. The opening of the airport, also known as Willy Brandt Airport after West Germany's Cold War chancellor, will be delayed by up to three months due to fire safety problems, authorities said on Tuesday, dealing an embarrassing blow to the German capital's flagship project less than a month before its planned launch.

Obama's "pivot" to China?s neighborhood and the "reset" in relations with Russia have produced limited results for signature foreign policy initiatives designed to improved America?s standing with its former Cold War rivals. Attention returns to China this coming week when Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner attend strategic and economic talks in Beijing.

    In this photo taken Feb. 16, 2012, a U.S. Air Force U-2 spy plane takes off during a training flight at the U.S. airbase in Osan, south of Seoul, South Korea. For more than 35 years, the Cold War era aircraft has been one of Washington's only reliable windows into military movements inside North Korea. As the world watches for signs of instability during North Korea's transition to a new leadership, the U-2 operations are as important _ or more so _ than ever. (AP Photo/Lee Jin-man)

    FILE - In this May 24, 2002, file photo Russian President Vladimir Putin's remarks provoke a laugh from U.S. President Bush, left, as they finish a Kremlin news conference in Moscow after they signed a nuclear arms reduction treaty that Bush said "liquidates the Cold War legacy of nuclear hostility" between Russia and America. The Obama administration's latest consideration of sharp reductions in nuclear weapons has produced a tidal wave of criticism by congressional Republicans with one lawmaker calling it "reckless lunacy." But the historical record shows that in recent decades, Republicans have been boldest in shrinking the U.S. nuclear arsenal. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)

Russia's foreign minister says Moscow will not abide by its World Trade Organizations' commitments in trade with the U.S. unless it scraps a Cold War trade law. A military attack on Iran would destabilize the region while new sanctions against Tehran would "stifle" the Iranian economy and hurt its population, Russia's foreign minister said Wednesday. Sergey Lavrov said that Russia is seriously worried about the prospect of a military action against Iran and is doing all it can to prevent it. (AP Photo/Mikhail Metzel)

    Nicaragua's President Daniel Ortega shakes hands with Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez (C) and Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (R) before swearing-in for his second term as president at the Revolution Square in Managua January 10, 2012. Ortega has won over many critics at home with a successful drive to cut poverty and spur business-friendly policies in Central America's poorest country. But his choice of friends abroad makes many Nicaraguans worry that the former guerrilla and Cold War icon is dragging down the country's reputation and unnecessarily antagonizing the United States and other Western countries.
