Kremlin notes lack of US initiative on Putin-Trump meeting issue
The issue on a possible meeting between Russian and US Presidents Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump lacks particular details and initiative of Washington, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
"So far, there is still the lack of particular details after the last phone conversation between Putin and Trump, which discussed the two presidents’ understanding on the need of a contact. There is still the lack of initiative of our US partners," TASS cited Peskov as saying.
On March 20, Putin and Trump held a telephone conversation and agreed to hand down instructions to start preparations for a Russia-US summit. Moreover, later news broke that Trump had not only mentioned the possibility of a meeting but also invited Putin to Washington.
