MOSCOW, June 9. /TASS/. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov does not rule out that the Russian President Vladimir Putin will discuss the issue of implementation of the Nord Stream 2 project with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.
"In theory it cannot be ruled out, but I cannot say whether its turn will come," Peskov said. "Russia and European countries carry out a wide range of trade and economic relations which in some kind of way fall under regulation of the European Commission, and Nord Stream 2 is among such big projects at the stage of implementation," he added.
According to the spokesman, the officials will discuss Syria, Ukraine and development of Russian-EU dialogue at the meeting on the sidelines of the forum.
"In general, [the meeting will focus on] relations between Russia and EU, on exchanging opinions on current regional problems - Syria and Ukraine. The main thing is the attempt to look at where we are heading in the relations between Russia and the European Union, and even against the backdrop of existing disagreements, what opportunities there are to support and develop dialogue," Peskov said.
Putin’s meeting with Juncker is scheduled for June 16.
