MOSCOW (Reuters) - A Kremlin aide on Tuesday described a meeting between President Vladimir Putin and U.S. national security advisor John Bolton as “interesting” and said Bolton’s presence signalled Washington wanted to maintain dialogue with Moscow.
“The discussion was business-like in nature, it was fairly substantive, I would say it was interesting,” Yuri Ushakov, a foreign policy aide to Putin, told reporters after the meeting in the Kremlin.
“We view Mr. Bolton’s visit as a sign the Trump administration, despite the overall situation with our relations, is ready to maintain dialogue. We also have the same readiness and intention.”
