MOSCOW, November 16. /TASS/. Argentina’s Foreign Minister Jorge Faurie said on Thursday he hopes to see Russian President Vladimir Putin at a Group of Twenty summit in Buenos Aires in the second half of 2018.

Putin however has not yet announced his plans for presidential elections in March 2018.

"Naturally, we never interfere into domestic policies of foreign countries," he said. "But we know that President Putin enjoys great support in Russia, so, we think we will see him at the Group of Twenty summit."
