Moscow [Russia], Nov 29 (Sputnik/ANI): Washington has confirmed the meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Donald Trump on the G20 sidelines, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters Thursday.
"Washington confirmed the meeting, so I don't know how to answer your question," Peskov said when asked how the Kremlin assessed the fact that Washington did not confirm the meeting, and whether there were any concerns that Trump could cancel the meeting at the last moment.
"Putin and Trump will first briefly talk tete-a-tete and later, about an hour will be devoted to expanded talks. No plans for separate Putin-Theresa May meeting at G20, but if sides wish, they could talk on sidelines," said Peskov. (Sputnik/ANI)
