MOSCOW: The Kremlin said on Wednesday that Russia was still open to the possibility of a meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin despite Washington's expulsion of a slew of Russian diplomats.

Trump earlier this month congratulated Putin on his re-election win and said the two leaders would meet soon.

However, already poor ties between Moscow and Washington have since deteriorated further over the poisoning of a former Russian spy in Britain and the United States on Monday said it was expelling 60 Russian diplomats.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on a conference call on Wednesday that Moscow had received no information from Washington about whether the Trump-Putin meeting was still on the agenda, but remained open to cooperation.
