He noted that there was nothing specific to report so far.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on 13 February that a possible meeting of the leaders ahead of the G20 summit in Germany had been discussed, but nothing had been decided on. So far there is nothing specific in this regard, " Peskov told the press on Monday.

Trump spoke with Putin on the phone on January 28 for the first time since the former was elected last November.

"President Putin is a person who keeps his promises". Putin said Friday that he would be open to having his first meeting with Trump in Slovenia. The two recently had a phone conversation, seen by many in Moscow and in Washington as a "good start, " and a significant shift from the rhetoric of the previous U.S. administration.

Relations between Russian Federation and America have also recently warmed, with Trump praising Putin in the runup to his inauguration last month. Yet, the new USA administration has lately been under pressure regarding the issue.

Michael Flynn, under fire for allegedly discussing USA sanctions against Russia with a Russian ambassador to the United States, apologized to Vice President Mike Pence for telling him otherwise, Fox News reports.

Moscow on Monday backed national security adviser Mike Flynn, saying he never improperly discussed sanctions with the Russian ambassador. But The Washington Post last week cited current and former US officials who said Flynn had discussed in detail the penalties with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

"Obviously every ambassador informs the centre (Moscow) about all the contacts he has so the information gets to us, but we are not willing to comment on internal discussions being held in Washington", Peskov said.
