Moscow, April 13 (IANS/RIA Novosti) US National Security Advisor Tom Donilon will come to Moscow Monday and bring a message from President Barack Obama, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
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 that 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 presidential foreign policy aide Sergei Ushakov, will discuss preparations for a meeting between Obama and Putin.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in February that US President Barack Obama was unlikely to visit Russia until September, when he is due to attend the G20 leaders’ summit in St. Petersburg.
