SOCHI, September 13. /TASS/. There are currently plans for neither a meeting nor a telephone conversation between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Donald Trump, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
"There is no news as of now," he said when asked if any preparations were underway for a meeting between the two leaders that could take place during the APEC summit in Vietnam in November, or for a telephone conversation ahead of the summit.
On July 8, on the sidelines of the G20 summit, the Russian President and his US counterpart held their first meeting, which proved to be one of the most anticipated global political events. The meeting lasted for two hours.
"Definitely, telephone talks are not enough if we want to resolve bilateral issues and the most pressing global problems," Putin said on the occasion. "Such personal meetings are necessary. I am very glad to meet you, Mr. President, and I hope that, as you said, our meeting will produce positive results," he added addressing Trump.
