PARIS: Russian President Vladimir Putin will not come to Paris next week after declining an offer to meet President Francois Hollande only for talks on Syria, a French president source said on Tuesday.
“There were contacts between the Kremlin and the Elysee this morning to offer Putin a working visit on Syria, but excluding all other events that President Hollande could have taken part in” the sources said.
“In response to this proposal, Russia has just indicated that it wants to postpone the visit planned on October 19th,”
The Russian leader was scheduled to inaugurate a new Russian Orthodox cathedral and visit a Russian art exhibition in the French capital.
