SOCHI, May 24 (Itar-Tass) - President of the United States Barack Obama will pay a visit to Russia before September 5, Russian president’s aide Yuri Ushakov told journalists on Friday.
“The sides have agreed this visit: it will take place ahead of the St. Petersburg summit of the Group of Twenty [on September 5-6],” he said. “The venue [of the visit] is being agreed. There are two options: Moscow or St. Petersburg.”
Ushakov reminded that the two presidents will have their next meeting in Northern Ireland’s Lough Erne on the sidelines of the Group of Twenty summit due on June 17-18. “I do not rule out that before that they will have a telephone conversation,” he added.
Along with meetings in Great Britain and Russia, Presidents Putin and Obama may have another meeting in 2013 - on the sidelines of the APEC summit on Indonesia’s Bali in October. The Russian leader never misses a possibility to use APEC summits to hold bilateral consultations with his counterparts from other countries.
