WASHINGTON, August 27 (Itar-Tass) - Barack Obama will have a meeting with Vladimir Putin during the forthcoming summit of the Group of Twenty, which is due to be held in St Petersburg September 5 and 6, White House spokesperson Jay Carnie said Monday.
He recalled that Russia is the host of the summit and the U.S. will be taking part in it and that is why their Presidents will definitely meet there.
Carnie recalled, however, that the schedule of Obama’s meeting with the heads of state and government of other member-nations of the group has not been coordinated in full so far.
Carnie recalled along with it that Obama had previously put off a visit to Moscow. The White House said then the decision had been taken in the wake of the situation around the former CIA technology analyst Edward Snowden, whom Russia granted asylum, and over controversies on a range of problems, including the situation in Syria and the deployment of the U.S. antiballistic missile system in Europe.
