Airline Deal Delayed

MOSCOW -- Russia and China have delayed forming a joint-venture cargo airline, a Russian Transport Ministry spokesman said Tuesday.

Transport ministers of the two states met in St. Petersburg last week to discuss the plan but failed to come to an agreement.

Russian minister Nikolai Tsakh has said there were "technical difficulties," but he did not describe them.

The spokesman said that the two ministers had agreed to continue the talks.
