High-level U.S.-Russia talks now 'up in the air': U.S. official

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - High-level talks scheduled for next week between U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and their Russian counterparts are now "up in the air," a U.S. official told Reuters on Thursday, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Earlier, the White House said President Barack Obama may forego an anticipated Moscow summit this fall following Russia's decision to grant asylum to fugitive former U.S. spy agency contractor Edward Snowden.
