A spokesman for the Russian government suggested Saturday that the Austrian capital of Vienna could be a potential location for a bilateral summit between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Russian state news agency Tass reports that Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters at a press conference that the two leaders discussed the possibility of a bilateral summit, including possible locations, during a recent phone call.

“Various cities, which can be suitable for a meeting between the two presidents, are often considered. You know that the two presidents discussed the need for such a meeting during their latest telephone conversation, including that Vienna could be such a city,” Peskov said.

Peskov was quick to add, according to the report, that discussions between Trump and Putin on the issue are purely in the preliminary stages.
