Agenda for potential Putin-Trump Paris summit requires clarification, says senior diplomat

When asked whether the summit would have a fixed agenda, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister said "The agenda is subject to additional discussion"

MOSCOW, October 24. /TASS/. The agenda for the prospective summit between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Donald Trump, which is planned to be held in Paris on November 11, still needs to be clarified, but Moscow is anticipating a full-fledged and extremely practical conversation, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told TASS.

Earlier, Russian Presidential Aide Yury Ushakov said that Moscow and Washington had reached a preliminary agreement on holding a meeting between the heads of state on the sidelines of events marking the 100th anniversary of the end of the World War I.
"A preliminary agreement on a meeting in Paris on November 11 has been reached. And we are proceeding from the fact that this will be a full-length meeting. That is, this is not a quick meeting, or a meeting on the go," Ryabkov noted.

When asked whether the summit would have a fixed agenda, the senior diplomat said, that the agenda was subject to additional discussion. "We are in favor of a most businesslike, substantive conversation," he stressed.
