Kremlin: Putin and Trump to discuss INF Treaty on sidelines of G20 summit
Russian President Vladimir Putin and his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump intend to hold a meeting on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Argentina at the end of this month, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, adding that among the issues they hope to discuss is the US decision to quit the INF Treaty.
"[At the events in Paris on November 11] Putin had a quick word with Trump. They agreed they had a great deal to discuss, including the INF Treaty. They decided to do this at the G20 summit in Argentina," TASS cited Peskov as saying.
Yesterday, Putin and Trump attended ceremonies in Paris at the invitation of French President Emmanuel Macron on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. Originally the Russian and U.S. leaders had agreed to use that opportunity for conducting separate bilateral negotiations only to postpone them at the request of the French side, because a Russian-U.S. summit might have distracted the world public’s attention from the main theme of the events.
