Kremlin: Bolton to Visit Russia 06/21 06:17
MOSCOW (AP) -- The Kremlin says that U.S. President Donald Trump's national
security adviser is to visit Russia.
Asked to comment on an Interfax news agency report that John Bolton is due
to visit Russia next week as part of preparations for a U.S.-Russian summit,
President Vladimir Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov confirmed Bolton's expected
visit to Moscow but refrained from further comment.
Responding to media reports that Putin's meeting with Trump may take place
next month, Peskov said Thursday that "we have nothing to say yet, and if and
when we are ready we will make the relevant statement."
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov emphasized that "we are ready for
contacts," adding that "if the agreement on a high-level meeting is reached, it
will be announced."
