MOSCOW, January 29. /TASS/. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry may visit Moscow on February 4-5, Russia’s Kommersant daily said on Thursday.
"If the sides agree all the aspects, it will be the first visit by the U.S. top diplomat to Moscow since May 2013," the newspaper writes.
According to the newspaper, the Russian and American sides have been looking at a possibility of such contacts for several days, but the visit has not yet been confirmed.
The key topic is likely to be the situation in Ukraine. "The United States that has taken no part in the multi-party talks on the settlement of the Ukrainian crisis since the April meeting in Geneva is not averse to take a more active part in the efforts towards de-escalation in Donbass," the Kommersant wrote, adding that John Kerry had given it to understand during his telephone conversation with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on January 25.
