Moscow will seek closer ties with the United States but will not tolerate interference in its affairs, according to a decree signed by President Vladimir Putin.
Putin set out foreign policy priorities in a wide-ranging decree signed hours after his inauguration to a six-year term as president.
The decree said Russia wants to bring cooperation with Washington "to a truly strategic level".
But relations must be based on "equality, non-interference in internal affairs and respect for one another's interests".
It said Russia will continue to seek guarantees that U.S. missile defences are not aimed at undermining Russia's security by weakening its nuclear deterrent.
