WASHINGTON, 9 Nov. The US administration does not exclude that Putin and Obama will meet in some kind of format at the G20 summit in Turkey, said at a briefing White house press Secretary Josh Ernest.

“I definitely would not exclude that there will be some discussion (between the presidents), which has been in the past on some General events or informal,” said Ernest.

He added that while he was unaware of plans to hold a bilateral meeting.

“I don’t have any information about the meeting (with Obama) with Mr. Putin,” — said Ernest.

Earlier, the President’s press Secretary Dmitry Peskov said that Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the “twenty” in Turkey have not yet fully laid out, so it is premature to talk about the meeting the Russian leader with the President of the United States, and bilateral meetings are being worked out in cooperation with other countries.
