Russia is not now cooperating with the United States on discussions about North Korea, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov reportedly told the Russian RIA news agency.

A Kremlin aide said on Wednesday it was entirely logical that Russian President Vladimir Putin would speak with USA counterpart Donald Trump during multi-lateral events taking place at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Vietnam this week.

According to Ushakov, Moscow and Washington have not reached an agreement on the timeframe for the two president's meeting yet.

He noted that the two leaders will take part in the summit, and "it is logical that they can meet and discuss certain issues".

Lavrov added that his contacts with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson could be held as well, but that will be possible only on the sidelines of the APEC summit on November 10-11, since Tillerson is accompanying the US president during his Asian tour.

"Putin and Trump both have full programmes and bilateral meetings, which have been arranged in advance and then there is the programme of the summit itself", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

"It is clear that they will exchange views on the most pressing issues, which include the situation on the Korean Peninsula", he said.

Last week, Trump said a meeting with Putin in Vietnam may happen.

The Kremlin official noted that Putin and Duterte are expected to discuss bolstering cooperation in the trade and economic sphere.
