“There are much more pressing matters from the point of view of bilateral relations that will of course be examined in the first instance,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on a conference call when asked about the matter.

“Beyond that, it’s all a matter of time that the heads of state decide to set aside for this meeting.”
