Putin to hold talks with Obama in New York

Moscow, Sep 24 (IANS) Russian President Vladimir Putin will hold talks with his US counterpart Barack Obama on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly session in New York, a Putin aide said here on Thursday.

Putin will also hold talks with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists.

Talks with Obama and Abe had been “agreed” and “added to the schedule”, Peskov was quoted as saying by Russia’s TASS news agency.

The Russian leader will address the UN General Assembly on September 28.

The meeting assumes significance as Putin and Obama meet rarely amid differences over the Ukrainian crisis.

Their last meeting took place in November 2014 when both the presidents took part in the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in China.

In the recent months, their contacts have been reduced to occasional telephone conversations.
