Russian President Vladimir Putin will hold fully-fledged talks with US President Donald Trump on November 11 during his upcoming trip to Paris, Kremlin aide Yury Ushakov said Tuesday.
"During the consultations between [US National Security Adviser John] Bolton with representatives of our foreign policy and military-political team, a preliminary agreement was reached on the possibility of a contact between two presidents in Paris at the events in connection with the centenary of the First World War, and our president confirmed this agreement during his conversation with Bolton," Ushakov told reporters.
Ushakov added that the meeting had been scheduled for November 11 and it would be a fully-fledged and "well-prepared" event.
The aide further noted that Moscow hopes that Trump will receive Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev at the White House during his visit to the US.
"The Putin-Bolton meeting was held with a view that when our Security Council Secretary Mister Patrushev attends consultations in Washington, he will enjoy a highest-level reception in the White House," Ushakov told reporters after the meeting of Russian President Vladimir Putin and US National Security Adviser John Bolton.
In addition, the officials discussed the possibility of exchanging views on strategic issues and disarmament.
Prior to his meeting with the Russian president, Bolton met with Russian Security Council Head Nikolai Patrushev on Monday, during which the officials discussed the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT), the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT), the Open Skies Treaty, the Convention on the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and the Convention on the Prohibition of Biological and Toxin Weapons.
