Moscow: Russian President Vladimir Putin will have a brief meeting with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Saturday on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Vladivostok, said his aide Thursday.

The Russian president and the top US diplomat will have a brief meeting during the presidential reception for top-level summit guests.

The Kremlin said the meeting would be held on the initiative of the US and will "continue the serious conversation that Putin and Obama had [during the G20 summit] in Los Cabos".

At the APEC summit (Sep 7-9), member states will be represented at the top level, whereas the US will be represented by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

President Barack Obama will be unable to attend due to the ongoing election campaign in his country.
