    Discussing the agenda of a potential meeting between US President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin in New York next week is not possible as the talks are not confirmed yet, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Wednesday, The New York Times reported, citing unnamed US administration officials, that a meeting between the two leaders could be held on Monday or Tuesday during the UN General Assembly.

    Peskov added that it was too early to discuss the Syrian crisis as the agenda for a meeting that may not occur.

    "Let's not get ahead of ourselves. After a meeting [between Putin and Obama] is confirmed, if it is confirmed, we will make an announcement," Peskov told journalists.
