MOSCOW, September 21. /TASS/. The meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and billionaire Donald Trump on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York next week is not on the agenda, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday.
"Nothing concrete is being discussed on this matter at the moment," Peskov told journalists. Businessman Donald Trump, who will run for US president in 2016 election from the Republican Party, said earlier he was ready to meet with Putin.
"The [presidential] schedule, which has not been finally approved yet, is planned in connection with his attendance of the UN General Assembly. It is very dynamic and extremely overloaded. So, to tell you the truth, I will not try to predict whether there will be a ‘window’ for any other meetings in addition to those planned already," the spokesman said. Peskov refused to provide any further details about meetings planned for Putin on the sidelines of UN General Assembly noting that it is premature to speak about this.
The Kremlin spokesman reminded that Putin said earlier he was ready for "any contacts that will contribute to mutual understanding in bilateral relations and will help take bilateral Russian-American relations out of their current state that leaves much to be desired."
