President Barack Obama has said Vladimir Putin made a "strategic mistake" when he annexed Crimea, in a move that was "not so smart".

He said those thinking his Russian counterpart was a "genius" had been proven wrong by Russia's economic crisis.

Obama said International sanctions had made Russia's economy particularly vulnerable to changes in oil price.

He also refused to rule out opening a US embassy in Iran soon.
