PARIS, June 06, 2:00 /ITAR-TASS/. The meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and French President Francois Hollande lasted more than an hour and a half on Thursday evening.
The presidents warmly parted on the porch of the Elysee Palace as they shook hands. They did not make any statements for the press.
Taking part in the talks were the Foreign Ministers of the two countries: Sergei Lavrov and Laurent Fabius.
On Friday, the two leaders will attend the festivities in Normandy marking the 70th anniversary of the landings of allied troops.
Hollande said in the runup to the meeting “I will never forget that the Russian people gave millions of lives” in the Second World War.
Putin called Russia's participation in the D Day celebrations a momentous event. In an interview with France's TF1 and Radio Europe 1 he reminded about the alliance of the countries of the anti-Hitler coalition in the fight against the Nazism. "This should not only remind us about our history, but also help to promote our relations now and in the future," he said.
