Kremlin notes US summit invite, says Putin and Trump have other chances to meet
MOSCOW, July 24 (Reuters) - The Kremlin said on Tuesday it had received a U.S. invitation for President Vladimir Putin to hold a summit with President Donald Trump in Washington at the end of this year, but said there were other chances for the two men to meet as well.
Kremlin aide Yuri Ushakov said Washington and Moscow agreed there was a need for another Putin-Trump meeting after last week's summit in Helsinki, but said Russia had not yet begun any practical preparations for a new summit.
"There are other options (to meet) which our leaders can look at," Ushakov told reporters, citing a meeting of G20 leaders in Argentina which starts at the end of November.
"Maybe there will be other international events which Trump and Putin will take part in." (Reporting by Denis Pinchuk Writing by Tom Balmforth Editing by Andrew Osborn)
