NEUCHATEL (Switzerland), April 12 (RIA Novosti) – US National Security Advisor Tom Donilon will come to Moscow on Monday and bring a message from President Barack Obama, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday.
It will be a wide-ranging message on the prospects of bilateral US-Russian relations, he said, citing US officials.
The Kremlin press service said earlier in the day Russian President Vladimir Putin might join the scheduled talks between Donovan and Russian Security Council chief Nikolai Patrushev at some point, but he will not have a separate meeting with the US official.
Donilon, who is also due to meet with presidential Foreign Policy Aide Sergei Ushakov, will discuss preparations for a meeting between Obama and Putin.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in early February US President Barack Obama is unlikely to visit Russia until September, when he is due to attend the G20 leaders’ summit in St. Petersburg.
