Vladimir Putin returns to the Kremlin on Monday. His foreign policy aide, Yuri Ushakov, says Putin is aiming to develop ties between Russia and the US, provided the relationship is equal.

Ushakov says Putin made the remarks in a closed-door talk with Obama's top security aide Tom Donilon on Friday. Donilon gave Putin a letter from Obama which states the American president's readiness to strengthen the two countries' partnership. Putin plans to visit the US later this month, where he will take part in the G8 leaders' summit and meet Obama. Putin's second major foreign visit will be to China at the beginning of June.
