MOSCOW, July 13. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin and his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron will discuss bilateral and international issues in Moscow on July 15, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko told reporters on Friday.
"As a rule, the presidents discuss those issues, which they believe it is necessary to discuss," he said, when asked whether Syria and Ukraine will be among the issues on the agenda. "It cannot be ruled out that they will raise the issue of bilateral relations and pressing international problems. The two presidents have been in in touch with each other on these issues, not only during their personal meetings."
According to Grushko, the two leaders discuss problematic issues fairly often, including during telephone conversations.
"We have maintained intense dialogue with France ranging from the top level to joint expert work," he stressed.
