MOSCOW, May 31 (Itar-Tass) - The concrete time frame and other parameters of US President Barack Obama’s visit to Russia will be coordinated within the summer months, Russian president’s aide Yuri Ushakov told reporters on Friday.
He reminded reporters that the sides had already reached an agreement in principle about US leader’s visit to Russia ahead of a G20 summit. Organizational issues remain to be coordinated now.
Ushakov also stressed the two presidents will meet at G8 summit upcoming in June, and this issue may be also discussed at their talks.
“We will obviously agree with the US within the summer months how to organize this visit concretely,” Ushakov stressed. He noted in reply to reporters’ queries that a Russian-US summit meeting may be held in Moscow or in St. Petersburg.
Earlier Ushakov said the visit of the US president will take place before September 5. “There is an agreement on the visit itself: it will take place before the G20 summit in St. Petersburg (on September 5-6),” he said. “The venue is being coordinated,” Putin’s aide said.
Ushakov also reminded reporters that the next meeting of the two presidents will take place in Lough Erne, Northern Ireland, where a G8 summit will be held. “I don’t rule out that prior to that the presidents will have a telephone conversation,” he added.
Apart from meetings in the United Kingdom and in Russia, Putin and Obama will be able to meet this year on the sidelines of an APEC summit, that will be held in Bali in October and that the Russian leader regularly uses as a possibility to hold separate consultations with colleagues from other countries.
