MOSCOW, November 7. /TASS/. The Kremlin is not preparing for full-fledged negotiations between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Barack Obama at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Beijing or the G20 meeting in Australia.
“The meeting with Obama is possible. The full-fledged meeting is not being prepared, but we do not rule out that they will talk one way or another,” presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists.
Putin is expected to attend a number of bilateral meetings at the G20 summit in Brisbane.
“A whole range of meetings is planned, I will not announce them, but in general, summits, besides their agenda, are a good venue for communications between each other,” Peskov said.
A representative of the US administration said earlier at the briefing in Washington that Obama expects to have an informal discussion with the Russian leader on the sidelines of the upcoming APEC and G20 summits.
Leaders of APEC, a forum of 21 Pacific Rim member economies seeking to encourage free trade and economic cooperation throughout the Asia-Pacific region, are due to meet in Beijing on November 10-11.
The summit of the Group of 20 (G20) major economies is scheduled for November 15-16 in Australia’s Brisbane.
