MOSCOW (Reuters) – A meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. counterpart Donald Trump at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Vietnam this week is “highly likely,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday.

Peskov added that the two sides were still trying to agree on the best time and format for the meeting.
