An official in Moscow said this week that Russian President Vladimir Putin was preparing to meet U.S. President Donald Trump at a summit in Vietnam over the weekend.
The Moscow Times reported on Wednesday that the meeting had been confirmed by Russia’s foreign minister. The meeting is expected to take place at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit.
Trump has said that he hopes to enlist Putin’s help in convincing North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons program.
It was not immediately clear if the two men would meet privately as they have done several times in the past.
