Russian President Vladimir Putin does not plan to hold phone talks with Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan yet; at the same time, Pashinyan is expected to attend the traditional informal CIS session at the end of the year in St. Petersburg, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

The Kremlin spokesperson notes that “traditional New Year’s Eve events” are scheduled in St. Petersburg in late December.

“The fact is that the events will not be purely festive. There will be a working agenda. And if Mr. Pashinyan arrives there—and we are waiting for him, just like everyone else—then there will be a great opportunity to talk,” Peskov said.

“If the heads of states do not consider it necessary to hold a conversation earlier, it will be their decision,” he added.
