HANGZHOU /China/, September 4. /TASS/. Russian and the US presidents Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama have not spoken yet on sidelines of the G20 summit in China, though agreed to have a separate meeting, press secretary of the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, told TASS on Sunday.
"As yet, the leaders have only greeted each other," he said in response to a question from TASS, whether Putin and Obama had a chance to talk.
"They have agreed to talk separately," the press secretary said.
The Kremlin said earlier it does not rule out that the Russian president’s working contacts with other world leaders, including US President Barack Obama, will take place on the sidelines of the summit, even though this meeting has not been agreed officially. Putin and Obama met personally last time at the Climate Conference in Paris last year and during the G20 summit in Turkey’s Antalya. The two presidents spoke over the phone several times earlier this year.
