Putin and Obama may talk next week: Kremlin

The Kremlin says Russian President Vladimir Putin and President Barack Obama may meet during international summits next week, although no talks have been officially planned.



Moscow: The Kremlin says Russian President Vladimir Putin and President Barack Obama may meet during international summits next week, although no talks have been officially planned.

The two leaders last met in June, when they exchanged a few words during a ceremony in France marking the D-Day invasion anniversary.

With Russia-West ties at their lowest point since the Cold War, amid the dispute over Ukraine, the strain in their personal relations was clearly visible.

Next week, Obama and Putin will attend the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Beijing, then the G20 summit in Australia.

Putin's foreign affairs adviser, Yuri Ushakov, said today that no meeting has been set, but Putin and Obama have "a good chance" to meet on the sidelines.

Ushakov emphasised that Putin wasn't shunning such a meeting.
