President Obama has confirmed the US will not be boycotting the 2014 winter Olympics in Sochi in Russia.
There have been calls for the games to be moved elsewhere in protest at anti-gay laws recently passed by President Putin.
However Obama says Washington must reassess its relationship with Moscow following anti-America rhetoric.
“It is probably appropriate for us to take a pause, reassess where it is that Russia is going, what our core interests are, calibrate the relationship. We are doing things that are good for the United States and hopefully good for Russia as well, but recognizing that there are just gonna be some differences and we are not gonna be able to completely disguise them,” Obama told a press conference.
His comments came as meetings between US secretary of state John Kerry, defence secretary Chuck Hagel and their Russian counterparts, Sergei Lavrov and Sergei Shoigu took place at the White House.
