MOSCOW, November 13. /TASS/. A formal meeting of Russian president Vladimir Putin and US President Barack Obama has not been scheduled at the G20 summit in Turkey but the two leaders may get in touch during it, the Russian presidential aide, Yury Ushakov, told reporters on Friday.
"Officially, a meeting at the G20 summit in Antalya has not been agreed but it cannot be ruled out that the presidents may get in touch during joint, in particular protocol, events within the framework of the summit agenda," Ushakov said noting that at the so-called 'on the go' meeting in 2013 an agreement on Syria's chemical weapons was reached.
"In other words, no formal meeting has been planned but some contacts may take place over the next two days of the summit," he said underscoring that in September Putin and Obama harmonized their positions on Syria, Ukraine and other topical issues on the sidelines of the 70th session of the UN General Assembly.
