MOSCOW, July 8 (Itar-Tass) - The Kremlin is completely unaware about a possible intention of the United States to cancel a visit of U.S. President Barack Obama in Moscow due in September.
“We are completely unaware of this,” Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov told Itar-Tass in comments on the information made public in the media.
“The visit is being prepared,” Peskov said.
U.S. President Barack Obama should arrive in the Russian capital in early September to meet with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin ahead of a G20 summit in St. Petersburg.
The Kommersant daily reported earlier on Monday with the reference to a source in the U.S. State Department that Obama may cancel his September visit in Moscow, if former CIA agent Edward Snowden will be still staying in Russia by this moment of time.
