MOSCOW, September 23. /TASS/. The Kremlin does not report on a meeting between Russian and US presidents Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama as it has not been agreed yet, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Wednesday.
"We will report on it after it is finally agreed," Peskov told journalists.
Earlier Wednesday, an informed source in Washington told TASS that the meeting of the two countries’ leaders will take place. Later both the White House and the Kremlin officially said they cannot yet confirm that such an agreement was reached.
Putin will on September 27-28 pay a visit to the United States to attend a session of the United Nations General Assembly. His speech in New York as part of a general political discussion is due September 28.
The latest face-to-face contact between Putin and Obama was their short meeting on the sidelines of the APEC summit in China last November. By that time, the two countries’ relations became considerably colder, mainly due to the situation in Ukraine. Since November, the presidents have only spoken by phone three times.
