Washington: US President Barack Obama will meet on Wednesday with his Russian counterpart Dmitry Medvedev on the sidelines of the UN general assembly, a US official said on Sunday.

Next week's talks will be the first between the two leaders since Obama yesterday shelved Bush-era plans for a eastern European missile defence system, much to Moscow's delight.

US envoy to the United Nations, Susan Rice, said the talks would take place Wednesday, the day that the UN's annual general debate opens bringing together world leaders and their ministers.
