WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S.-Russian relations are looking up.

That's the view of the European Union's foreign policy chief, Javier Solana.

Solana says Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will meet next month with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov to look for ways of improving cooperation.

Recent disagreements have involved missile defense, NATO expansion and Moscow's invasion of Georgia.

Solana met with Clinton in Washington on Thursday and was in Moscow earlier in the week. Solana says Vice President Joe Biden's recent comment about hitting the reset button on relations with Russia was well received in Moscow.

There's no word yet from the U.S. on a Clinton-Lavrov meeting. But Solana says it will be in Geneva following a NATO foreign ministers' meeting early in March.
