Kremlin: Putin and Trump to have "on the go conversation" in Paris
Russian President Vladimir Putin will "certainly" meet with his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump in Paris on November 11, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, adding that the leaders will have an on the go conversation.
"They will certainly meet," Sputnik cited him as saying.
"Indeed, the circumstances have changed. The multilateral format of the events dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I makes it impossible to hold a longer meeting between the two presidents," the spokesman said, stressing that Putin and Trump will hold talks "on the go" and agree on a full-fledged meeting.
Trump said yesterday that he probably will not sit down for a meeting with Putin when both leaders are in France this weekend for the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One.
"I am not sure that we will have a meeting in Paris, probably not," the U.S. president said. Trump added that while nothing official has been set up, he plans to meet with Putin during the G-20 summit in Argentina and after that meeting will have "probably plenty of meetings."
