MOSCOW: The Kremlin said on Monday (Jun 11) that Russian President Vladimir Putin would be glad to host everyone in Moscow, when asked if he would invite high-ranking US officials.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov was responding to a journalist who asked if Putin would invite officials from North America to Moscow if the United States won a bid to host a future soccer World Cup.

On Friday, Russian state news agency RIA cited a diplomatic source as saying Moscow and Washington were discussing a possible meeting between Putin and US President Donald Trump.
