HELSINKI, Finland (AP) -- U.S. and Russian military leaders have been holding talks in Finland.
The summit is the highest-level military meeting between the two nations since Russia's war with U.S. ally Georgia.
Officials say the topics of discussion are Afghanistan, the Black Sea region and Georgia.
A U.S. embassy spokeswoman says the meeting was unannounced to keep it from being "high-profile." Participants included Adm. Michael Mullen, the chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff, and his Russian counterpart, Gen. Nikolai Makarov.
A Pentagon spokesman says Mullen reported that the talks were productive and "businesslike."
