PARIS, December 6. /TASS/. An unplanned meeting of presidents of France and Russia, Francois Hollande and Vladimir Putin, will take place in Moscow, the Elysee Palace said on Saturday.
The Kremlin’s press service confirmed the meeting will take place.
French diplomatic sources say the meeting will be organised at the initiative of Paris.
“The initiative was voiced on Friday,” the source said.
The two leaders’ recent meeting was on November 15 at the G-20 summit in Australia.
The Elysee Palace and France’s Foreign Ministry chose not to give comments to TASS correspondent on the agenda of the talks.
BMF television channel said “one of the main topics would be the Ukrainian conflict, as well as supplies to Russia the helicopter carriers it had ordered.”
Hollande is returning to Paris via Moscow after his two-day visit to Kazakhstan. While in Kazakhstan’s capital city, Astana, the French president said “tension and various pressures cannot be solutions for settlement of the Ukrainian crisis.” He said “de-escalation should at first be at the level of declarations, and then it may result in pullout of troops.”
The French president added he had “always initiated dialogues on the problem.”
While speaking about the Mistrals, Hollande pointed it was important for France “to make the decisions the other side will listen it its views.”.
