MOSCOW, June 02, /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin who is paying a working visit to Sochi met the former French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, on Monday.
“It was a private meeting,” Putin’s spokesperson Dmitry Peskov told Itar-Tass without commenting on the meeting’s agenda.
He added that Sarkozy had come to see Putin without his wife. France’s former first lady, singer Carla Bruni, gave her only concert in Moscow on Monday night.
Sarkozy was the president of France from 2007 to 2012.
Russian President Vladimir Putin will visit France later this week to attend the celebrations of the 70th anniversary of the allied troops landing on the beaches of Normandy during WWII.
However, a meeting with U.S. President Barrack Obama is not part of the agenda.
“The possibility of a separate meeting with Obama has not been discussed,” Peskov told the Russian News Service (Russkaya Sluzhba Novostei) on Monday.
Peskov added that Putin would meet Prime Minister David Cameron to discuss the situation in Ukraine, bilateral relations and other international problems.
The Russian president will also meet French President Francois Hollande in Paris and will move to Normandy on June 6 to attend the D-Day celebrations.
