MOSCOW - No decision has been made so far on the date and place for a possible meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Donald Trump, the Kremlin said Wednesday.

In a phone conversation on Tuesday, the two presidents said they would ask the countries' top diplomats to prepare for the meeting "as soon as possible," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a daily news briefing.

Putin and Trump agreed that the problems in Russia-US relations make it necessary to hold a face-to-face meeting, Peskov said.

On Tuesday, Trump called to congratulate Putin on his re-election.

"We will probably get together in the not too distant future," Trump told reporters at the White House following the phone conversation.

Trump said that they could discuss the arms race between Washington and Moscow and also talk about issues including Ukraine, Syria and the Korean Peninsula.

The prospective meeting will be the second formal face-to-face conversation between the two leaders, who had their first such meeting on July 7, 2017 on the sidelines of the G20 Hamburg summit.
