MOSCOW, March 14. /TASS/. The Kremlin will not comment on the agenda of possible talks between Presidents Vladimir Putin of Russia and Xi Jinping of China until their meeting is officially announced, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told TASS.
"I don’t know. Once we make an announcement, we will be able to say something," he said, when asked if Putin and Xi could discuss China’s plan to resolve the situation in Ukraine.
"We haven’t made any announcements [about the Chinese president’s visit]," Peskov pointed out, adding that the two sides usually announced such visits simultaneously.
Reuters reported on Monday, citing sources, that Xi Jinping intended to visit Moscow for a meeting with Putin as early as next week.
The two leaders last met in person on the sidelines of a Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit in the Uzbek city of Samarkand in September 2022. In late December, Putin held a video conference call with Xi Jinping, inviting him to make a state visit to Moscow in the spring of 2023.
