BEIJING, November 11. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin had a brief discussion with the presidents of Vietnam and Indonesia, and the Australian prime minister on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Beijing, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.
During the talks with Indonesian President Joko Widodo and Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang, the Russian leader discussed “primarily the issues of bilateral agenda.”
The Russian and Vietnamese presidents also focused on the implementation of agreements reached during the recent exchange of visits of heads of two states, Peskov said.
Speaking on the meeting with Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, Peskov said “the leaders decisively called for a real investigation into the causes of the (Malaysian Boeing) crash.”
Both leaders urged a speedy investigation into the crash. The sides also noted that this is unacceptable when experts cannot get access to the crash site “as fire is opened from the side of Ukrainian units.”
Putin stressed that from the very beginning Russia has been calling for an “objective, rapid and effective investigation.”
Ahead of the summit, the Australian prime minister said he planned to speak with Putin “one way or another” to discuss the MH17 crash in Ukraine, which killed 298 people onboard, including 27 Australians.
Abbot previously vowed to “shirtfront” (which means an aggressive front-on bump in football) the Russian leader at the G20 Leaders’ summit in Brisbane scheduled for November 15-16.
In comments on this statement, Peskov said: “It appears that he did not even try.
