"There have been contacts… The two sides have suggested to continue contacts, including those involving [US National Security Adviser John] Bolton," Kremlin's aide Yury Ushakov said.
When Ushakov was asked who had initiated these contacts, he said that it was the United States. However, he did not specify when preparations for a new Putin-Trump meeting could start.
"We don't know… We have voiced regret that [the presidents] did not have an opportunity to have a thorough conversation [on the sidelines of the summit]. Let's see what plans will be made next," the aide concluded.
Earlier, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov also commented on the lack of meeting between Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump, stressing that it resulted in tensions further noting that Vladimir Putin was ready to continue a dialogue with Trump.
