    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The Kremlin has not yet received an invitation for Russian President Vladimir Putin to take part in the climate summit organised by US President Joe Biden, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday.

    "You know, the president has no plans so far. I have no information that there has been some invitation. If there were some contacts through diplomatic channels, I think you better consult with the foreign ministry to check," Peskov said at a briefing.

    The summit will reportedly be held on 22 April or a bit earlier. Reporters asked Peskov if Russia had received an invitation and if Putin planned to participate in the event.
