MOSCOW, September 9. /TASS/. The Kremlin confirmed on Wednesday that Russian President Vladimir Putin could meet former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, who is expected to make a private visit to Moscow in coming days.

"We do not rule out the possibility that a personal meeting between Berlusconi and Russian President Vladimir Putin may take place one of these days," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists, confirming Berlusconi’s upcoming trip.

Peskov recalled that Berlusconi and the Russian leader maintained long-term business and friendly relationships. Their talks could focus not only on bilateral issues of Russian-Italian ties but also on developments in the international arena, the spokesman said, noting also that Putin and Berlusconi could exchange views on most "pressing regional problems".

"Any contacts with politicians and government officials having such rank as Berlusconi — no matter whether they are incumbent politicians or non-incumbent ones — are certainly a matter of diplomacy," Peskov said, adding that these were important contacts and the Russian president "attaches great significance to them".
