Kremlin says 'logical' that Putin, Trump will talk at Vietnam summit

MOSCOW (Reuters) - A Kremlin aide said on Wednesday it was entirely logical that Russian President Vladimir Putin would speak with U.S. counterpart Donald Trump during multi-lateral events taking place at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Vietnam this week.

“It’s entirely logical that they will shake hands, that they will discuss certain issues,” Kremlin aide Yuri Ushakov told reporters. “We are also ready to hold a separate, exhaustive bilateral meeting. The time frame for such a separate meeting has not been agreed upon, but the possibility is being assessed.”
