London: British Prime Minister David Cameron and Russian President Vladimir Putin will hold face-to-face talks this week, amid tensions sparked by the Ukraine crisis and Prince Charles reportedly comparing Putin to Adolf Hitler.
Cameron`s 10 Downing Street office says the two leaders will meet on Friday in Normandy, France, where both will attend events to mark the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings.
It said the talks would be an opportunity "to set out the importance of a dialogue between the Russian government and the new Ukrainian government" following last month`s presidential election in Ukraine. Britain opposed Russia`s annexation of Crimea and has accused Moscow of fomenting instability in eastern Ukraine.
During a visit to Canada last month, Prince Charles reportedly compared Putin`s actions in Ukraine to those of Hitler.
