MOSCOW, May 11. /TASS/. There is no progress on a possible meeting between Russian and US Presidents, Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump, preparations stopped at a stage of an agreement to organize such a meeting that was reached in a telephone conversation between the two leaders on March 20, acting presidential aide Yuri Ushakov said on Friday.
"This matter stopped at a point that was reached in Trump’s telephone conversation with our leader on March 20, when the American side said a contact between the two presidents was possible," he said.
Ushakov refrained from comments on Trump’s upcoming meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. He did not anticipate either whether such a meeting could be successful. "So far, I’d prefer to leave this question without an answer," he said.
The acting Kremlin aide also refused to comment on Putin’s possible meeting with Kim Jon-un.
