MOSCOW, November 5. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Donald Trump will hold a brief meeting on November 11 on the sidelines of the commemorative events in Paris on the 100th anniversary of World War I armistice, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told TASS adding that the change in the format is not linked to any disagreements or other problems in bilateral relations.
"In this case, it is not due to disagreements, it is rather due to the format of the multilateral events dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the First World War. This format does not allow the two presidents to meet in the full format. That's why it was decided that they will have a brief meeting and agree between themselves on when to hold a full meeting," Peskov said.
Trump earlier told reporters that he is not sure that he will be able to hold talks with Putin in Paris.
According to initial plans, the two leaders were supposed to hold separate talks in Paris.
Putin and Trump will also have an opportunity to meet at the G20 summit in Argentina on November 30 - December 1. The two president last met on July 16 in Helsinki.
