President Barack Obama will visit St Petersburg for September's G20 summit and will also hold a meeting with President Vladimir Putin at the G8 summit in Northern Ireland in June.

The White House made the announcement after the leaders spoke by telephone to discuss the Syria crisis and the testy relations between Russia and the United States, which have deteriorated further since Obama's first term.
