VLADIVOSTOK, August 31. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Barack Obama will discuss at a meeting in China during the Group of Twenty (G20) summit the Syrian settlement issue, Russian presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov told journalists on Wednesday.
"No separate full-format meeting (between Putin and Obama) as such is planned at the moment, nevertheless, we assume that it is very likely that Putin and Obama will have an opportunity to talk on the sidelines of the summit," said the Kremlin official.
According to him, "Certainly, it is fair to assume that there will be a certain brief or a more detailed exchange of views on the Syrian affairs."
Peskov said earlier that Moscow would like to see the United States’ greater readiness for real cooperation over Syrian settlement.
