WASHINGTON, August 31 (Itar-Tass) - Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin have not planned a separate bilateral meeting during the G20 summit in St. Petersburg, but the US and Russian presidents will have an opportunity to talk, a high-ranking administration source told reporters August 30.
This time, no bilateral meeting and no separate brief talk of the presidents on the sidelines are expected, she said.
The summit will take place on September 5 and 6.
The administration officially confirmed that the United States was willing to have constructive cooperation with Russia on many issues, despite what might happen in Syria in the next few days. The U.S. administration does not conceal that it is preparing for a military operation in the country.
The briefing for reporters was held as a teleconference on condition of anonymity.
