    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The Kremlin is not ready yet to name specific dates for a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Donald Trump, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Sputnik.

    "We are not ready yet to talk about concrete dates," Peskov said.

    On June 21, Trump said that he was "looking at the possibility" of a meeting with the Russian president in July.

    Despite denying of having any information about the possible meeting, the Kremlin spokesman has confirmed that US National Security Adviser John Bolton is scheduled to visit Russia.

    "As far as we know, indeed, such a trip will take place. This is all we can say," Peskov told reporters.
