MOSCOW, February 22. /TASS/. The Russian side has not had other contacts with the new US administration, except those that were reported earlier, Kremlin aide Yuri Ushakov said on Wednesday.
Two telephone calls were held between Russian leader Vladimir Putin and US President Donald Trump: one phone call took place after Trump’s victory at the presidential elections in November and the other on January 28 after the new US president assumed office, the Kremlin aide said.
Also, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov held a meeting with new US Secretary of State Rx Tillerson and then they held a telephone talk, the Kremlin aide said.
"These are actually all the contacts at the official level that were held with the new administration," the Kremlin aide said.
The time and place of the first meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Donald Trump has not been discussed in detail yet:
"It is a good question - where and when [the meeting could take place]. This issue has not been discussed in detail through diplomatic channels yet. We have some suggestions and the US must have some too, but we haven’t discussed it yet," the presidential aide said.
According to Ushakov, Putin will participate in the G20 summit scheduled to be held in Hamburg in July. "The president is expected to represent Russia at the G20 summit," he said noting that "various options (for the meeting between Putin and Trump) have been circulating in the media, even some officials have come up with proposals." In this regard, Ushakov pointed to a statement made by the Slovenian president who expressed readiness to host the two leaders’ meeting. "However, Russia and the US have not yet discussed this matter in detail," the Russian presidential aide reiterated.
The G20 summit will be held in Hamburg on July 7-8.
As reported earlier, Trump will take part in the NATO summit in Brussels on May 25
