MOSCOW, October 11. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will not travel to Paris for a visit scheduled for next Wednesday, a source in the Kremlin has told TASS.
"The visit of the president to Paris on October 19 won’t take place," the source said commenting on media reports.
Last week, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov did not rule out that such a visit could be held and said that the Russian side was preparing for it. He said more details would be revealed as soon as the final agreement was reached.
On Monday, French President Francois Hollande expressed doubt whether these talks were needed amid the differences with Russia over Syria. Later France’s Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said Hollande would make a final decision on his personal meeting with Putin "taking into consideration the situation in Syria."
The Elysee Palace told TASS on Tuesday that Hollande’s working sch
edule for the next week was not ready yet. The press service of the French president refused to confirm or deny reports on plans for talks with Putin or their possible cancellation.
