ANTALYA, November 15. /TASS/. Presidents Vladimir Putin of Russia and Barack Obama of the United States had a 20-minute informal conversation on the sidelines of the Group of Twenty summit in Turkey’s Antalya on Sunday.
The two leaders used a break between the meeting of the BRICS heads of state and the summit’s working session to have separate conversation. They took seats in front of each other and spoke tete-a-tete in the presence of their interpreters.
No details of the conversation are available. The working dinner and contacts between the G20 leaders are held behind closed doors.
Earlier on Sunday, the two leaders exchanges a couple of words during the photo ceremony.
Putin and Obama had a full-format meeting in late September in New York on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly. That was their first meeting face-to-face over two years.
Aide to the Russian president, Yuri Ushakov, said earlier Putin and Obama had not planned a meeting during the G20 summit, though could not rule out their contacts on the sidelines.
