MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Peskov added that the dinner conversation between Putin and Trump was not a "secret meeting."
"I can confirm indeed this topic was touched upon. I cannot say more than that," Peskov said.
He also said that Putin and Trump did not discuss the US' arming and training of Syrian rebels at their meeting, when asked to comment on the reported end of CIA's arm-and-train program for Syrian oppositi forces.
US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin had an hour-long private conversation in Hamburg, Germany, at the G20 summit that until now had not been revealed, the president of the international consulting firm Eurasia Group told the Hill. While at a dinner table with G20 heads of states and their spouses, Trump got up from his seat to have a private talk with Putin.
After the media reports have been released, Trump harshly slammed the coverage of his private talks with the Russian leader.
The Fake News is becoming more and more dishonest! Even a dinner arranged for top 20 leaders in Germany is made to look sinister!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) 19 июля 2017 г.
Putin and Trump met for the first time during the G20 summit in Germany's Hamburh on June 7. Putin said that he discussed at the first meeting with Trump the situation in Ukraine and Syria, the fight against terrorism and cybersecurity.
Instead of a scheduled one hour, the meeting ended after about 2 hours 20 minutes. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson were also present at the talks.
It is not yet known when exactly Russian President Vladimir Putin would meet his US counterpart Donald Trump after their first encounter earlier this month, Peskov noted Thursday.
