MOSCOW, June 11. /TASS/. The Kremlin believes it’s unnecessary to comment on media reports on Washington’s alleged concern over the visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to Italy on Wednesday. According to presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov, this issue concerns the bilateral relations only.
"I would not like to comment on this kind of concern," he said. "These issues concern relations between Moscow and Rome," Peskov added.
The ANSA news agency earlier reported, citing its sources in the US administration, that the White House had been anxiously watching the Russian leader’s visit to one of the European Union member countries ahead of the EU summit, which is to decide whether anti-Russian sanctions should be extended.
