Russian and U.S. delegations are holding talks in the Turkish capital Ankara on Nov. 14, Russian outlet Kommersant has reported.
According to the newspaper, the head of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service Sergei Naryshkin attended the meeting.
The subject of the talks is not reported, nor were they announced earlier.
The spokesman of the Russian dictator Dmitry Peskov could neither confirm nor deny the information about the talks in Ankara, RIA Novosti media reported.
A Turkish representative also refused to comment on a possible meeting of the Russian and U.S. delegations in Turkey, Reuters writes.
On Nov. 9, Bloomberg reported that Russia and the United States plan to meet in the coming weeks to discuss the resumption of inspections of nuclear weapons facilities under the new Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty.
These talks were suspended after Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February.
The last time the U.S. and Russian delegations met for talks in Geneva, Switzerland, was in January 2022, a little more than a month before Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine. At that time, the aggressor state voiced ultimatums on the non-expansion of NATO and demanded "security guarantees."
Those negotiations ended unsuccessfully.
