U.S. suspends trade, investment talks with Russia over Ukraine

WASHINGTON, March 3 (Reuters) - The United States has put trade and investment talks with Russia on hold as a rebuke for Russia’s incursion into Ukraine, a U.S. official said on Monday.

“We have suspended upcoming bilateral trade and investment engagement with the government of Russia that were part of a move toward deeper commercial and trade ties,” a spokesman for the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative said.
