MOSCOW, September 24. /TASS/. It is premature to discuss the agenda of talks between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Barack Obama before it has been officially confirmed, the Kremlin said on Thursday.

"Let's not get ahead of ourselves. We will make a corresponding announcement after the meeting has been confirmed and if it is confirmed," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists.

Commenting on reports that Russia might suggest joint military action in Syria, Peskov stressed: "It is far too early to talk about its [the meeting’s] possible agenda."

White House spokesman Josh Earnest meanwhile said Obama and Putin might meet in New York, though he could not confirm any actual plans.

"Certainly, there is the possibility that the two leaders could meet while they're there because they are likely to be there at the same time," he said.

The New York Times reported on Thursday Obama "has decided to meet with President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia in New York next week, if it can be arranged", noting that the leaders "would sit down on Monday or Tuesday while in New York for the annual session of the United Nations General Assembly, but the two sides were still trying to finalize a mutually convenient time."
