RT: Putin & Trump discussed post-inauguration meeting, but no date set – Kremlin
Russia's President Vladimir Putin has discussed a future meeting with the US President-elect Donald Trump, but no exact date was appointed, the Kremlin said, rebutting media reports the two are already set for a tête-à-tête in January.
“It is true that during a [phone] conversation they talked about intentions to resume contacts, to arrange a meeting, but it has not been mentioned when this will happen,” Putin's press secretary Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Thursday.
Putin and Trump might meet after the latter's inauguration, but there is not even an estimated date, the Kremlin spokesman added, disconfirming media gossip on the matter. Peskov added that any official meeting before Trump is sworn-in had not been discussed at all.
