Russian President Vladimir Putin and Saudi Arabian Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih may talk this week on the sidelines of an energy forum in Moscow, a Kremlin spokesman said.

The spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said Putin was scheduled to speak at the forum and while there he may also have short, informal meetings with visiting officials, including with Falih.

“We do not rule that there could be short contacts on the sidelines of the forum,” Peskov said on a conference call with reporters. “It will be short, standing-up encounters, not more than that.”
