MOSCOW, October 3 (Itar-Tass) - The agenda of a possible meeting between Russian and U.S. presidents Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit is being finalized, Russian presidential aide Yuri Ushakov said on Thursday.
“The agenda of this meeting is being finalized. We believe that this meeting will take place,” he said adding that the meeting was planned for October 7.
“This was Russia’s initiative to hold the meeting and it was at once supported by the American side,” Ushakov said noting that the leaders “may discuss any themes” placing a focus on the situation in Syria.
“We are always open for such contacts. We attach great importance to them as concerns bilateral agenda and pressing foreign-policy themes, which is extremely important for international security and settlement of grave crises,” the aide said.
“Last time the leaders had a productive meeting in the G8 Summit in Lough Erne. Then they had dynamic contacts in St. Petersburg (the G20 summit). It is quite logic to meet in Bali. We support this,” Ushakov said.
